I  Tried all manor of combinations 
With & without
trunk DRM (which I had installed and then tried it without)
Option "ForcePCIMode"

The results were all the same...  The server starts, the Apple22" cin
display power light goes from green to amber and then stays amber with a
blank xserver screen.	

Would the 2.6 kernel work with the r128 chipset or should I just forgo
and get a newer/better graphics card.  I would like to make this one
work as much as possible and later on can spend the$$ on a new card.

I did include them as attachments but was not to sure if I should have
imbeded them into the mail.  But I agree on the log file.. I have been
going over it to find anything I have missed.
