Does Xorg 6.9/7.0 support the old PCI graphic card S3 Trio64?

Hi everyone,

i think Luc is absolutely right. I installed a real S3 Trio64+ card and my 
dual monitor work now!!(There are still problems, which i will post in 
another email.)

The label on the main chip of the fake one was remarked and blurs. The real 
one is very clear.

Thank all of you. It's you who encourage me and make me through. And i am 
waiting for your help in another email.
