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 
a sample.

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.
