Looking at the code the error message means that this card only
announces VBE 1.2 and we want 2.0 so this doesn't work. Googling around
reveals an XFree86.log that says this card should do 2.0, so I don't
know what it really does. Maybe some firmware issue or so.
Don't have another card lying around?
And the qemu option still stands...
