There is a misunderstanding too. At the current version of XFree86
3.3.x each X-server has a (small) bunch of drivers for some graphic cards.
So far OK?

XGGI itself is a X-server on top of GGI. The idea behind of it is, that
there is _one_ X-server for _any_ graphic card. I hope, you can follow
now, if not...
