That's unfortunate.

You actually got the VGA16 X server to work?  I couldn't even get *that*!

I was stuck with a Compaq QVision 1280 video card at work for a while.
I ended up buying the Xi Graphics Accelerated X Server, which worked
for me.  It's a bit expensive, though (US $100), and it's quite non-free
(in the free speech, DFSG sense); you'd be better off buying a better
graphics card if that's at all possible -- you'd not only save money,
but you'd get better performance.
