The 'rivafb' driver is already 'working' (not well though) - it supports
messed up 8-bit colour using the XFree86 'fbdev' driver....I guess I'm
really only interested in getting X running at this stage, so I'll probably
focus on the 'nv' driver - IIRC, Dan Burcaw @ Terrasoft has been working on
the 'rivafb' kernel driver - I haven't heard anything from him for a while

BTW: Can anyone point me in the direction of some good guides/FAQs/info
about fixing endian issues and the such? Also, any useful tips of pointers
to get me started would be excellent :)

Thankyou all,

Tony Arnold
