The later. After you've unpacked linux-2.2.16:
cat s3pat | patch -p1

Yes, with vesafb. Not all fb programs are full screen.

This is a little more compatible with vesa 1.2 card.
> Would any VESA 2.0 card let me use fbset?
No. Only ones that use more advanced drivers than vesafb, like matrox.

Or replace Xvesa with Xfbdev, and use xinit.
> WOuld a different 3D card be of use to you? I have one with heat sinks.
No, thanks. I'm not doing much 3d work these days, and even if I do, I have
two PCs with 3d cards to work with. Heat sinks? Must put out a lot of heat.
