According to a quick Google search, the trident is only VESA 1.2, aka
not supported by the vesafb.  Sorry.

I could be wrong, having never used the card myself, but I doubt that
it'll work.  As for the ATI, not only is it quite different from the
trident (sporting VESA 2.0 and all), it has its own fb module compiled
into the kernel.  (Assuming this is the card you said worked.)
