yes.  my luck has not been good.  Perhaps the support has gotten better
in XFree 4.x.x, but under 3.3.2 I had some pretty bad problems with
noise, and the card I had (generic $20 card) didn't have enough
bandwidth to handle 1152x900@80Hz 16bpp, and that's when I decided to
take it back.

I would try to find an old S3 or matrox before buying a new 6326.
