Cats has video on pci. Shark has CyberPro 2k chip at VLB iirc.
There's no CyberPro driver for XFree. There's a driver for it in
KDrive server, but we don't build, and it doesn't have NetBSD specific
bits at all.
I think the best bet currently it to try wsfb driver for XFree. Also,
macallan@ has been looking into turning Xmacppc server into Xwsfb as
there's very little macppc specific code in Xmacppc.
