Hehe, try e.g. this one (DOS version binary)

What chips he plan to support? No problem for 3Dfx but nVidia sucks at giving any documentaion. He may use Nouveau Linux driver that was created based on hacking & RE windows drivers but AFAIK it works usable only for 2D and 3D support is still very basic and poor compared to nvidia proprietary linux driver. But of course any acceleration is better than plain vesa LFB... Intel should have opensource linux drivers, about ATI I don't know.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
