Okay...that -sort- of worked.  Now the X server comes up, but with minimal
resolution, and only in a tiny box in the center of the screen.  I suppose
it is better than just having static, but I feel certain it can get
better.  I redirected the output of my startx to a file, and apparently it
disabled all of the modes I had selected, saying that they needed higher
sync rates, so I got stuck with some miserable resolution.

Also, I have been having to put in the graphics card memory manually,
since every time I try to select what looks like the right card from the
database, X crashes before it starts.  Maybe a problem there?  Anyhow, any
additional help would be great.

I can provide any info out of the configuration or output files on request,
but since the machine in question is not yet either on the network or in
possession of a disk drive I can't just attach the files :(.

Thanks much


p.s. - sorry to start a new thread, something happened to my email (email
gnomes) for the thread, and I had to reconstruct this
