Yes. Of course, I had a tarball of my old /etc when I switched to Debian from
LinuxPPC, so I used my old XF86Config.

I think there is one called XF86Setup? But I can't find it, so someone may
have to confirm/deny that... I've emailed you privately with a copy of mine as
Q for someone - why don't we have Xconfigurator (which might be
redhat-centric?) or something similar? It really helps... Maybe I'll alien it
out of LinuxPPC and put the deb up - if there is any interest.

The fbdev one is accelerated - but you may need to tell the kernel what your
video card is to get the framebuffer to be accelerated. If you need help with
this, I (we) need to know more about your hardware setup.
