Ah, in this case you will probably have to do something similar to what I
had to do for one of my machines that was supported by the dri.sourceforge
branch: I installed the debian XFree86 woody package [just updated to
4.03, btw], then fetched the dri source, built and installed it over the
top of the debian package - you may have to tweak a couple of install
paths, but other than that, things seem to work out Ok. Also, I had to
copy the kernel module from the dri source tree into the /lib/KVERSION
tree by hand, and you should be aware that everytime you remake/reinstall
the kernel, you'll have to copy the dri.sourceforge version of the kernel
module back in [after rebuilding it against the new kernel]
I can probably dig up the config changes I had to make to the dri tree to
make it install more or less cleanly on top of the debian package, if you
