hmm... Vision 864...

I have look at main-board just today.  I found the RAMDAC (S3 86C716 SDAC)
maybe.  Also I try to probe RAMDAC on my prep.  It failed, because don't

However, I have the possibility of understanding the method of using
vga_drv now.  When trying before, nothing was displayed on the screen
though xterm and xclock ran.  However, there is a possibility to be able
to solve now.  ;-)

I am looking for cirrus now though I am planning to make cirrus run with
bebox now.  However, matrox(mga_drv) has a very difficult possibility to
our regret.  Because xfree cannot solve quite a lot of those symbol in
submodule mga_drv.
