I had the same problem with a PC 164 but with a different videocard. Adding a line like

BusID      "PCI:0:9:0"

to Section "Device" of my XF86Config file helped. pciconf -l can help
you to find the BusID. /var/log/XFree86.0.log should also report the
BusID of yor card.

I added the line BusID "PCI:1:0:0" and Xfree tries to start. But now my monitor turns to black and I get a big warning that the "signal frequency is out of range". Really weird because I always used the (correct) values for horizontal and vertical frequencies for the monitor. The only thing I can do at that point is to reset the computer.

        `_n+1' trivial tasks take twice as long as `_n' trivial tasks.
