 the xvr-100 should Just Work(tm) out of the box. The GENERIC kernel has
 a driver for it ( radeonfb ) and Xorg should just use the radeon
 driver, you don't even need a config file for that.
 Also, no need to swap cards - just point the OpenFirmware console at
 the xvr-100 and the NetBSD kernel should do the right thing.
 Please let us know if there are any problems.
 That said, I have an xvr-1200, it's really a shame we can't run X on
 it. I'll give it a shot next time I have some hacking time.
 have fun
