Your model might be "Winfast S250V", but the chip is not. That is, the chip the card is based on is something else. This is a rather old card is it?
Winfast used to be S3 cards mainly.... Ah yes , a quick google search reveals that your card is based on an S3 Trio64V+ chip.

That should be not only mentioned amongst the alternatives, it wouldn't surprise me if it was autodetectable... Well, perhaps not, since it is a muggy ol' S3:-).

Did you ever get it to work? I realize I missed mentioning to just rerun the X configuration program... don't remember if it was still Xconfigurator back then, or if it was redhat-config-xfree86 ...:-).

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

Accept gns' answer - (Hmm he seems to be getting rather a lot of points these days - can we dock some points from him for being smug?  ;)    )

Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.

PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THIS COMMENT AS AN ANSWER!
