Dear NetBSDers,
   I am trying to get a new ATI FireGL T2 video card working with XFree86
4.3.0 under NetBSD-1.6.1
   When X -configure is run it probes the card as a "vesa" card not the
FireGL T2 card it is.  It appears that there is support for Linux for this
card - with some drivers from a german site.  I have seen logfiles which
ABI class: XFree86 XInput driver, version 0.4
(II) FireGL8700/8800: Driver for chipset: ATI RV250 Id (R9000),
ATI RV250 Ie (R9000), ATI RV250 If (R9000), ATI RV250 Ig (R9000),
ATI RV250 Ld (M9), ATI RV250 Le (M9), ATI RV250 Lf (M9),
ATI RV250 Lg (M9), ATI RV280 5960 (R9200 PRO), ATI RV280 Ya (R9200),
ATI RV250 5C61 (M9+), ATI RV250 5C63 (M9+), ATI R200 QH (R8500),
ATI R200 QL (R8500), ATI R200 QM (R9100), ATI R200 QT (R8500),
ATI R200 QU (R9100), ATI R200 BB (R8500), ATI RV350 AP (R9600),
ATI RV350 AR (R9600 PRO), ATI RV350 NP (M10), ATI R300 AD (R9500),
ATI R300 AE (R9500), ATI R300 AF (R9500),
ATI R300 AG (Fire GL Z1/X1), ATI R300 ND (R9700 PRO),
ATI R300 NE (R9700/R9500 PRO), ATI R300 NF (R9600 TX),
ATI R300 NG (Fire GL X1), ATI R350 AK (Fire GL unknown),
ATI RV350 AT (Fire GL T2), ATI RV350 AU (Fire GL T2),
ATI RV350 AV (Fire GL T2), ATI RV350 AW (Fire GL T2),
ATI R350 NH (R9800), ATI R350 NK (Fire GL unknown)
   Is there a reasonable way to get this card work under NetBSD?
