You must find a specific X-server for your card. XFree does not support this particuloar card. I would look into either the S.u.s.e servers, or a commercial package like AccellX

Have you tried the XF86_SVGA server? at the intergraph pages, they say the card is
VESA compatible, so it should at least run...

I can start it in 16 bit but I only get 320x200.
cat /proc/pci says something about renedition 1000 but If I chose Renedition in XF86Setup It doesn't work.

hmm... on the rendition homepages (www.rendition.com) they say they sent
demo sources of drivers to the xfree people, to the metro-x people and some other
X guys for driver programming...
btw, is your X set up to make a .X.err and .X.out file in $HOME on startup?
send me these files, after starting X with this card, to my e-mail... maybe i can find
something...

my email is lemmy@eregion.central.de, and for the logfiles:
in your .bashrc do
--- cut here ---
function startx { /usr/X11R6/bin/startx $* 2>&1 | tee ~/.X.err ; }
--- cut here ---

then you´ll get $HOME/.X.err, where all output of the X server is logged...

hello:  
      to be able to configure the card you should run a make menuconfig this way  
 
cd /usr/src/linux  
/usr/src/linux #make menuconfig  
 
then it showed you the configuration window.  
 
it selects a card similar to yours and later he keeps the kernel.  
 
then it leaves the menu and you are in the prompt and it executes  
 
make dep; make clean; make zImage  
 
then copy the zImage of the directory /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot to the root  
 
then it publishes the lilo.conf and in the part where this the vmlinuz replaces it for the /zImage  
 
then save the lilo.conf and from the prompt /etc #it executes lilo  
 
he will appear you a message ADDED LINUX *  
 
then resetea the team
