No, I am not using sisfb at present since it did not work (oops). I plugged a matrox millenium into my pci bus.
Interesting thought: It's very easy if you're using linuxbios to have lots of display cards. I am probably going to take the sis630 MB once it is running linuxbios correctly, put four cards into it, and replace my 20" monitor with 4 14" lcd displays and try to run a multi-headed X. I'm not sure how you do this with xfree86 but it ought to work -- it worked 10 years ago on a sun3 ...
ron p.s. If you put the matrox into a standard L440GX running Intel's bios, the BIOS will detect the extra display card and ... execute a HLT instruction. Stupid BIOS!
