For example, a machine here at work needed me to specify the busID.
lspci on that machine reports :

01:00.0 Display controller: Texas Instruments TVP4020 [Permedia 2] (rev 01)

On that machine, in XF86Config, I have
    Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Standard VGA"
        VendorName  "Unknown"
        BoardName   "Unknown"
        Driver     "glint"
        #Chipset    "ti_pm2"
        #BusID      "PCI:01:00:0"
        #VideoRam   8192
        #Clocks     25.2 28.3

Hmm, I guess it doesn't need the BusID right now.  ISTR it compalined
about not having it when I set it up the first time.

As for downgrading, I don't know.  I would expect the 'vga' driver to
work, in VGA mode, on any VGA-compatible hardware.  I'm surprised that
it doesn't work at all on your VirtualPC.  I've never put linux in a
VirtualPC, so I can't help with experience.
