Guys, I have been trying to use XFree86-4.2.0 under
NetBSD 1.6_BETA4 .. for some machines with=20
S3 Trio64VL cards.  These machines have worked
well with NetBSD 1.5.2 and XFree86-3.x.x.=20

The only way they will work with 4.2.0 is by using
the "vesa" driver.  Yet I've seen in some of the
Linux mailing lists that people have been able to
change "vesa" to "s3" .. and thereby got satisfactory
accelerated performance.

Anybody out there have any suggestions, please ..
