Your assumption is correct, but I gonna need a bit more guidance in this.
Where do I find the 'vidlist' and how to get the pci id?
I got a shell on screen two of the clients so is it just a matter of :
Bus 0, Device 8, Function 0:
VGA compatible controller : Cirrus Logic ...
or am I completely in the dark here?
Thanks for the fast reply! Appreciat it very much!

Here is what I did to solve a problem I had with some
S3 and cirrus cards. But first, I'm assuming the 25%
of the computers that are having trouble all have the
same video card.
Get the pci id of one of the cirrus video cards and
edit the entry in the vidlist file. Change it to the
cirrus driver instead of whatever it says. Then you
can keep your 'XSERVER = auto' setting in the lts.conf
