S3ViGRE/GX2 Display Card

Q1 .I am using S3ViGRE/GX2 AGP-BUS display card ,
    At first the installer chose XF86_S3 for me
    but it doesn't work.
    Then I changed to XF86_SVGA server , it works.
   
    But how to increase the resolution of
    Virtual screen instead of "320 200" ?

    B'cos it only works properly with this setting.

------ **  ------
Section "Screen"
    Driver      "svga"
    Device      "Generic VGA"
    Monitor     "Generic Multisync"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes      "800x600"    
        ViewPort    0 0
        Virtual     320 200
    EndSubsection
EndSection

to stop using the 320x200 resolution, delete the Virtual Line from your file.
Section "Screen"
        Driver      "svga"
        Device      "Generic VGA"
        Monitor     "Generic Multisync"
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       8
            Modes      "800x600"

As for the server make sure the "X" is linked with the correct server.
