SaX.log from sax2 -r -c 1

Various distros' X configurators have mostly been inept with Tseng cards.
SUSE's used to be the good exception, OK up through about v9.3. Originally most
of the bad ones failed to included two required config options, VideoRam and
noaccel. It seems noaccel is no longer required in the latest XFree86 and Xorg
versions, but VideoRAM still is. If the configurator or X would assume at least
1MB of RAM for these cards then they could at least get started at 800x600,
after which a GUI tool could be used by the user to adjust the RAM size to the
correct amount and get a decent supported resolution.

I can put the ET card in a non-Intel onboard video 10.2 Factory (NForce 2)
system if you wish some other tests to separate out chip conflict issues.
