      Tim,

      I have a CPi 400Gt with the same Chipset...

      I had to fool the XF86Server into thinking the NeoMagic driver was
      different
      board. I have attached the relevant sections of my XF86Config for an
      internal
      display at the bottom. To make it work, you may well have to download
      the latest XF86 SVGA server from Redhat or the XFree site
