Great!  Which kernel version is that?  Please attach a Xorg.0.log.

Yes, but most likely it's not a driver issue, but a kernel issue...  You see, I
woke up my old KM400 machine, booted it from a USB stick with Linux Lite 2.6...
and see... I don't get any video either!  (When I boot it in safe mode, it
forces the use of the vesa driver and I get a visible and usable desktop.) 
What I then noticed in the log is a line that I'll post in a minute.
