We, too, went thru this problem with IBM 560X laptops that use the
NeoMagic chipset. Quite a few modern high end laptops use it. We got
a "FreeBSD" server from XiGraphics, like others have already
mentioned. We use just the Xserver from the package and use the
NetBSD clients. The XiGraphics accelerated X package costs $200.
I've been told that if you go to buy it from them as a poor student
you can get a 25% discount. Otherwise, you can get a volume discount
