Actually, I'm sure it's not the _same_ but a very similar one. I also have
this 32mb and the same X resolution as you. But you're right, my one is
the M7 and you now told me you have the M6. But I don't think this will
really matter. The Boardname-string is ifaik only an identifier for XFree
and has nothing to do with the real board name.

I was given nothing. The source of the mentioned configuration file (btw
sorry, they are the same) is a SuSE 7.? installation and a little bit of
handworking. Could be more optimized ... right. But I think you can take
the modelines out of my configuration file, it was generated by SaX (a
SuSE tool for configuring X) and it seems to work for quite a while.
and btw, if you find out how to accelerate the whole thing (for games
like tux racer etc) let me know :-)
