More to the point, you have the original 5530, which would suggest a
Cyrix GX as the CPU (easily confirmed by the output of "cat
/proc/cpuinfo") rather than one of the newer NSC or AMD hybrids.

On Ubuntu/Lucid, you'd be running the VESA driver instead of the Cyrix
or NSC drivers. It's a bit slower than native support, but it at least
works cleanly on recent X versions.
