Meanwhile, here's the relevant part of lspci:
VGA compatible controller: S3 inc. 86c764/765 [Trio32/64/64V+]
memory at fb000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [Size=8M]
The card is Vesa VBE 1.2 (maybe not important)
Edit: s3virge gave me a fatal server error: no devices detected
Edit 2: vesa works great, better than Xvesa and the S3 driver. It lets me have a high resolution with 75Hz refresh rate, but it too recognizes only 2mb of memory. And it doesn't have acceleration....
I could use the 3.3.6 for acceleration, but I remember that it needs modelines (How do I figure those out?) Anyway, I'm happy with vesa for now.
For others in same kind of situation, here's a readily compiled 3.3.6 server with all drivers:
