Neomagic Magicgraph 128xd Driver

I have recently got a Toshiba Tecra 8000 portable. This has a Neomagic 256AV video chipset, and runs win95/98 fine at 1024*768 resolution.
I occasionally want to run Windows for Workgroups 3.11,and have the Tosh set up OK with a dual boot. However, the only video driver I can get to work is the Windows default VGA driver.
Does anyone know if/where I can get hold of a video driver for the Tosh Neomagic system which will give me 1024*768 resolution when running Windows for Workgroups?
