I've tried Matrox Millennium and G450PCI on my DS10, both worked fine.

Right now I am trying to build a Xserver for a S3 Virge that I have on 
this box. I am quite in the same situation as you :) as this card work 
with the X server from Debian GNU/Linux and I'd like to make it work on 
NetBSD. I m tryig floolowing this :
For the Linux emulation, I don't think it will work, I guess it is too 
low level which  stuff like probing the PCI bus when X starts.

If you can get anything working, report it !
