The kernel config looked like what I had, except I didn't compile the
frame buffer device, and compiled the drm and agp drivers as modules.
I also found that the tdfx driver doesn't work except in 16 bpp mode,
for some reason, so try running `X -depth 16 :0' and see if that works
better (then put it in /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers or equivalent if so, or
change the DefaultDepth in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4).  Also, to get
hardware acceleration for GL, you need to install libglide3.

And by the way, I'm actually happy about the 1280x960 mode, which
preserves the usual 4:3 aspect ratio.
