X has radically changed from XF3 to XF4. The limit of my X hacking was
identifying some patches to the mouse driver code so that multiple
mice could be used independantly. I've never worked with video
drivers. I don't really want to now, I just want Rage driver to
support my external video port, and if that means writing it myself
I'm willing to learn. I'm just looking for the correct person/people
to pester in order to get started.
Ani Joshi sounds like a good starting person, Michel Danzer, maybe?

Don't know. I need XF4 and Rage128.
