Good suggestion.  Here's what I got so far:


XFree86 Version 3.3.1 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6300)
Release Date: August 4 1997
If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is newer
than the above date, look for a newer version before reporting
problems.  (see http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)
Operating System: Linux 2.0.31 i686 [ELF] 
Configured drivers:
SVGA: server for SVGA graphics adaptors (Patchlevel 0):
