I got the xserver to work again.. but this does bring up a question.  Do
the modes make a difference in using the drivers?  I have tried this

also I put my modes into the config file.  I never thought the modes
made a difference.

I looked at the prices for the RADEON 9800 PRO 128MB AGP for my box and
it looks like it will be a good idea to get out of the rage128 chipset.
