What problems are you having with XFree86-4.2.1? , Problems you describe
are with 'text'
mode? s3 video card is at best a  'dinosaur' vga card. Do you have
access to a more recent vga PCI card,
perhaps a Matrox 4mb Mill/Mystique etc, or any supported card. See your
/var/log/XFree86.0.log file.
If you need a /etc/XF86Config file or test kernel let me know.
Pavel -run 1.6J,K not _RELEASE kernel i can send a netbsd.tar.gz 1.6K
kernel if you need it.
