HPA4982B video card in debian on HP PA-RISC

HI all, i installed Debian 3.1 r4 for HP PA-RISC in a HP9000 rp5400 series.

i want to run kde but the video card driver is not working, i try with a lot of generic drivers like vesa, but doesn't work.

here is the lspci command:
0000:20:00.0 3D controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Visualize FXe (rev 05)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company: Unknown device 108c
Flags: 66MHz, medium devsel, IRQ 384
Memory at 04000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=16M]
Memory at 05000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
Expansion ROM at fa000000 [disabled] [size=128K]


and here is the error when i try to run xinit:

(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:

Debian for PA-RISC doesn't have any drivers for the Visualize FXe card. You may be able to put some other PCI graphics card in the system and get it to work with the X server after booting with the serial console. That isn't particularly easy because of needing to initialize most graphics cards.

See http://www.parisc-linux.org/faq/graphics-howto.html
for more details.
