The most important thing is to give us the _EXACT_ error message... isnt
that what X tells you when it "crashes"?

where? I only see you citing a PM from somebody else, no XF86Config?
Did you check the FAQ?
Did you change the DefaultColorDepth to 4, as I guess thats the maximum you
can use in that mode?
You say the console is working and only xfree does not find valid modes? My
first bet: you did not adjust the Defaultcolordepth. I thought we put a note
in the installation that you'd have to change this value in case you system
is not capable of 8-bit color?
