YES, YES, YES!
I managed to get it working on my Thinkpad 600x
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Neomagic Corporation NM2360 [MagicMedia 256ZX]
chasey:~ > X -version
XFree86 Version 4.2.0 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 18 January 2002
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/)
Build Operating System: SuSE Linux [ELF] SuSE
Module Loader present
It didn't work until i found the trick on the XFree86 Neomagic-mailinglist
"Please try my patch in "[Neomagic][patch] Reserve memory for Overlay".
(This patch changes neo.h, neo_driver.c, neo_video.c.)
And add the following option in Section "Device" in your XF86Config.
Option "OverlayMem" "829440"
829440 = 720x576x2
of course your Card must have enough memory, but since 1024x768x2 are
exactly 1.5MB and you have 2.5MB on your card, you should be fine.
Before i added the option in XF86Config, i also got the "Insufficient
resources" but right now it plays a 704x400 DivX quite fine :-)

Get back there in front of the computer NOW. Christmas can wait.
