The problem he is having is that the "via" xorg driver won't work for
the onboard VIA S3 UniChrome (KM400, CLE266, etc. chipsets). It's (the
via driver) the correct driver, so it should work. Also it doesn't
work in FreeSIBE 1.1 (FreeBSD 5.2ish?). It only seems to work with
XFree86, I'm not sure though if he tried it with an Xorg based Linux
distro to see if it was a FreeBSD problem or an Xorg problem.
