You want to use the generic VESA video driver, 8192k video ram, 16 bit color,
and probably start with 800x600 display.
This is what I have in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4:
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Generic Video Card"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
