No idea. I'm not even sure what these are. I have seen several references
to OFfb in the mailing lists, and I read the Framebuffer document in the
Doc section, but that didn't help me.

I figured something along that line, yes. In fact by tweaking these
values I am now able to use the ati driver under my 2.2 kernel. What
puzzles me now is that I am not changing anything in the config (which I
got mostly through dpkg-reconfigure) and what works with 2.2 kernel does
not work at all with 2.4 kernel.

Well in any case do you have any suggestions about sensible values for
the horizontal and vertical refresh on my machine (a Lombard PowerBook -
bronze keyboard) ?
