The latest version of XFree86, 4.3, supports it fairly well. You can
get a tarball and compile that (you'll need .8 GB to do it).

You may need to upgrade your kernel and some other goodies if you want
all of the goodies it provides, but it does compile and run on a plain
vanilla RH 8.0 installation.
