I am working on a legacy system, my last attempt will be to upgrade to X.org. 
However if you do not mind be more specific about what hack in the driver I need.
I did changed the kernel to include x86 bios emulation and configured the -allowMouseOpenFail (in the XF86Config).
I thing the driver is able to talk to the card, but not sure, this time I am getting segmentation failure.
I have attached the new files, please if you could let me know if I am still stuck with BIOS issue?
