Just like real hardware, the Win311 SuperVGA 256 color driver doesn't work on S3 cards, so maybe either change to one of the non svga_s3 options, or install the S3 Trio64 drivers.
Hello! That's right, I think. The SVGA driver was meant for the ISA cards of 1987 to 1993, such as Tseng ET3000/ET4000, OAK OTI-67,
Paradise/Western Digital (PVGA1A/B/C, WD90Cxx), Realtek, Video Seven VEGA, etc.
If he's lucky, some of the patched SVGA drivers will work via VESA VBE, though.
Provided, that his S3 card has an usable VESA extension in VGABIOS (VBE 2.x ideally). If not, S3VBE20 utility might help.
If memory serves, there are at least two patched versions of this SuperVGA 256 color driver floating around.
One was made by Japeth, who also made that HX DOS Extender.
The other one was made especially for VMWare's synthetic VGA device by Ken Kato.
It can be found at Zamba's VMware page @ http://www.scampers.org/steve/vmware/,
which also has that very useful WQGHLT tool that prevents Windows 3.x from causing a 100% CPU usage.
For DOS, there's DOSIdle tool.. Using this SVGA patch on anything real, is hit and miss, though.
