Try to get XF86Setup from SUSE or RH. This is to setup your X-System including XF86Config in a custom graphical environment. It is a great tool to automatically install your X-Server and all necessary config-files correctly.
Note: you must have a S3-Vigrge-compatible Xserver installed, but you can get one all over the net.

make SURE you don't just assume you have an S3 VIRGE
capable version of XFree86. as c4lv1n suggested, you need it.
support for that chipset wasn't in XFree86
until quite recently (April 97?). Up until
a few months ago you needed to download a server
that was specific to the VIRGE, not the standard S3 one.
that may still be true.

i.e., pay attention to c4lv1n's note!
