Well, turns out that the Alpha FAQ was a little out of date on this
issue, so I've updated it to list at least all of the cards that
I've seen run on one of my machines.
If I got any of the details wrong, could someone send me a note so
that I can update it? Thanks.

I am not sure about the state of XF86 support on NetBSD/alpha, but I
think that I remember that it works?
I only actually own the funky DEC PCI video cards. :-)

I'm running an aria(4), but that is a throwback to another time. Not
sure what to recommend.
