X is spread over a half-dozen odd packages. Some base files are in
xfree86-common, fonts are in xfonts-base and others, the x-server itself is
in xserver-common and xserver-xfree86. You should choose these packages
from in dselect (or aptitude?), and then dselect will prompt you asking if
you want to include other related packages at the same time.
xserver-xfree86 should work for all video cards (if they are supported by X
v4 at all).
By the way, v4 itself is only available in Debian unstable (but slowly
making its way into Debian testing). However I think a version has been
compiled informally somewhere for potato (Debian stable). You might find
references to the potato packages on the Debian X mailing list (I think
archives can be found from www.debian.org).
