I have also tried an older Trident video card running it in VGA mode with the same error.

I would think the mga should work. Maybe it needs a BusID line in the X
config. Try asking debian-alpha@lists.debian.org.

I am sure that someone is out there who is actually running a system like mine with a working video card?  I would like to know the make and model of the card that you are using and the extent to which it works.
