I did.

from XF86Config:

----------------snip-----------------
# Any number of graphics device sections may be present

# Standard VGA Device:

Section "Device"
    Identifier	"Standard VGA"
    VendorName	"Unknown"
    BoardName	"Unknown"

# The chipset line is optional in most cases.  It can be used to override
# the driver's chipset detection, and should not normally be specified.

#    Chipset	"generic"

# The Driver line must be present.  When using run-time loadable driver
# modules, this line instructs the server to load the specified driver
# module.  Even when not using loadable driver modules, this line
# indicates which driver should interpret the information in this section.

    Driver     "vga"
# The BusID line is used to specify which of possibly multiple devices
# this section is intended for.  When this line isn't present, a device
# section can only match up with the primary video device.  For PCI
# devices a line like the following could be used.  This line should not
# normally be included unless there is more than one video device
# intalled.

#     BusID      "PCI:0:3:0"

     VideoRam	2048

#    Clocks	25.2 28.3

I tried over and over, but it would always change the 2048K to 256K.  It does 
recognize the board in /proc/pci.

I'm just frustrated.  If there is a solution, great.  But this X stuff gets 
pretty hairy.   :~(
