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:

Then this:

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.
