	I think that was the basis of my current config file... I just sucked
out the comments so I could absorb everything in there at a glance.
Makes it easier to fiddle :)

	If its a firmware/hardware problem, I hope you got a way to explain it
to Apple in terms they understand ;)

	I grabbed your XF86Config-4.radeon, added that line and uncommented the
font path to misc so X doesn't exit on not finding the fixed font. When
I fire up X, the LCD stays on, but there is a narrow horizontal band,
about 5% tall 55% down from the top, which is blooming :)

	When I added that line to the XF86Config-4 brew that I had last (and
uploaded), I see the default X screen, but its tinted yellow and looks
like its in mode line hell.
