    Default xorg Driver for XGI Z9s

    I'm considering purchasing an ASUS P5BV-C/4L LGA 775 Intel 3200 ATX Server Motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131228).

    I thought I'd first check out the video driver because I was not familiar with XGI drivers. I emerged the driver (Gentoo), and then read this rather disappointing news item:
    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item=619&num=1

    Then this:
    http://www.michaellarabel.com/?k=blog&i=185

    The man page says that the driver supports PCI and AGP video cards based on the following chipsets:
    XGI5597/5598
    XGI530/620
    XGI6326/AGP/DVD
    XGI300/305
    XGI540
    XGI630/730
    XGI315/H/PRO
    XGI550/551/552
    XGI650/651/M650/661FX/M661FX/M661MX/740/741
    XGI330 (Xabre)
    XGI760

    No mention of the Z9s chip set in the supported video cards, but maybe one or more of those cards is compatible with the Z9s chip. I can't tell from the git log (http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=xor...git;a=shortlog) if the driver supports this chip. Can anyone tell me more? If video support is lacking this might not be a viable board for a home server.

    bump. I'm curious too as I've been looking at boards and the ones I'm most interested in use this chipset
