I have a  9FX Reality 332 graohic card which has the S3 Virge chipset. I have been unable to find a x server that will support this card. Xinside does produce a server but charges for it. Is there a freeware x server supporting this card? If so were can I get it.

According to the documentation:
"The current XF86_S3V server supports S3 ViRGE (86C325) and S3 ViRGE/VX (86C988) chips. 32bpp TrueColor and External RAMDACs for ViRGE/VX are not yet supported. It has been tested with ViRGE cards with 2 and 4MB DRAM and with a 220MHz ViRGE/VX card with 2MB VRAM up to 1600x1200 with 8/15/16bpp."
