Actually, having looked closer at the package, I see:

# 1106:1122 - VX800 (PCI_CHIP_VT3353)
alias pcivideo:v00001106d00001122sv*sd*bc*sc*i* openchrome

Which would seem to indicate that it _does_ support this chip.  Perhaps
you could explain what goes wrong when trying to run X on it?
The /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from trying to run it would be informative.
