The main motivation for using vga over cirrus is that vga allows much
higher screen resolutions. cirrus is stuck at 1024x768

I just tried with winxp pro sp3, and while the listing in 'device
manager' has '?' next to it, everything seems to work quite fine, and
higher resolutions can be set. Are you seeing differently? If not, I
think we should stick with vga.
