XF86Setup starts a VGA server (the only one standard to EACH and EVERY video board), it's easy to make mistakes anyway...

You can have an S3 Virge and select an S3 server or something by the way... Why don't you try Xconfigurator (it will try to detect the board) or xf86config (less cool, but ...) and when you have it up and runnig, try again with XF86Setup...

No valid video modes means resolution/color depth combinations not supported by onboard video RAM/monitor scan frecuencies...

Good Luck,
