One idea: the drivers print a few numbers when they are loaded; if you
see some occurences of "ff", it may be that your card's MMIO is not
being enabled. When I got my card, I had this problem until I told my
BIOS that I did _not_ have a PnP OS. (But this ended up breaking my
sound card...)

(I've only used the 4.3 drivers. The one time I tried the 5.0 driver,
it couldn't agree with my X server about were the video memory was.)
