Also, I tried to edit the xf86config-4 fiile and eliminating the generic vga section and leaving only a svga portion for the trident driver I have.  This still does not work.  Can someone tell me if I am missing a command or a lib or file.  

just a shot in the dark, did you upgrade this box from potato? i ask
because i did on my box and in the process of apt-get dist-upgrade it kept back
the version of the svga server which i could not get to work with xf 86
4.0. the solution was:

1. apt-get remove xserver-svga
2. apt-get install xserver-svga

(having my apt sources pointed to testing).
this fixed things for me (on a thinkpad x20).
