Thanks, I've managed to get X working since then. I found somewhere that
I could run apt-get and reinstall the X packages. Did that, it comes
up. It came up in a small frame within a frame at first, but I switched
my XF86Config file to use VGA16 at 800x600. Now I get the 1" offset
everyone talks about. I've tried to have lilo.conf use vga=770 but it
then tells me that the setting is unspecified and offers me to continue
booting or insert another setting.
I'm gonna keep trying.
Thanks for your suggestions, I'll make sure to save them...
