Legend is correct. :-)

I'll kick the relevant people a couple of times when I get back home in the
early new year. Especially now that XF 4.0.2 is out and we don't have code
freeze any more.

*kick* *kick* *kick*

Currently the only supported video card is the 'TGA' which is rare in
PCI form.  Legend has it that a Wasabi Systems employee (Simon?)
has XFree86 in a near usable state on alpha.

Basically you are out of luck for right now.  I would tend to think alpha
support will be showing up in 1.6 with XFree86 4.x, but I don't know.
