Does anyone have (recent) links or info on getting standard VGA cards to work with Linux/MIPS?

The AMD/Alchemy folks have a Silicon Motion video adapter that will
work in that board.  I've done the framebuffer, X-Windows runs on it.
The standard video cards are nearly impossible to use in any kind of
embedded environment.  Nothing PCI is available anymore, and even
if you are able to find a way to initialize the controllers, they are obsolete
before you get any product ready for manufacturing.
