Just wanted to point out that fbdev (aka XF68_FBDev in XF3.3 or the
fbdev driver in XF4) in my experience in both XFree86 3.3 and XFree86
4.0 is broken on the Mach64 VT (assuming your using the atyfb.c from
Linux 2.4 -- as the one in Linux 2.2 is unusable (although the one in
2.1.x is :\ )). It leaves nasty black pixels on the screen, and  doesn't
refresh properly. 

That said, annex's "ati" driver in XFree86 4.0.1, crashes my box hard
after moving a window or closing a window with the Mach64 VT.

It should be noted, Xpmac runs pretty good with the Mach64 VT and atyfb
frame-buffer driver, except for a slight bend on the top of the screen
(and the fact the screen is a bit too much to the right). But all of
those problems, can be adjusted with the montior controls.
