While Sub500 is probably a nice company, Linux support for Via C3 
associated chipsets is extremely poor. The old Trident graphics on 
first-gen C3 machines only has unaccelerated VESA support.

The S3 Unichrome Pro drivers are only marginally more useful, since the 
Unichrome Linux development team has split into (at least) three groups 
who will no longer talk to one another. There is an accelerated driver 
in the X.org CVS, however, but it might not do everything you need.
