I have configured some 380XD machines which are very similar to your machine.
I compiled a kernel with VESA frame-buffer support and put "vga=788" in 
/etc/lilo.conf and then configured X to use the frame-buffer device at 
800x600x16bpp.  The same method should work for you, it's easy to setup, and 
for most tasks it's as fast as any other X server.
