Are you pointed at stable or unstable?  There are different
versions of X.

Also use the search feature of the archives.


Be sure to set it to search the PowerPC list.  A great many
people (myself included) have had problems getting X working
over the last year, and have gotten help from this list.

If you are using stable you'll probably want to look further
back in the archives, since you're using XFree86 3.x ...  I
recall there were some useful discussions about 3.x in the
spring and summer.  

Good luck.
