Ok, thanks for the help! I'll try the program if I get any free time,
probably today. Interestingly enough I got an older card (3D10, DC21030?)
to work just fine with -noaccel. All the colors look good and it's
stable too. I ran into some permission problems though, the same as in:

ie. XalphaNetBSD was suid-root but digging in with gdb and ktrace
showed that it couldn't open none of the proper files (/dev/ttyE0, mouse,
keyboard etc). The only way I got it working for non-root was removing
the suid-bit and getting very liberal with permissions in /dev.

Anyway, I'll change the cards tonight and I'll try the kernel patch + cmap.
Thanks for all the help!
