But, I don't know if this X server has ever been tested in Puppy.
Does anyone have an older PC, before 2000, with one of these chips?

If so, could you try this package?

Presuming that you can get X running, use PupGet to download and install it, then I think it will just be a matter of exiting from X (from the Start -> Shutdown -> Exit to prompt), then type xwin to restart X.

X should auto-detect the chip.
Note, the package also has some utility programs:
xf86config and xvidtune, but they should not be necessary to get it going.
