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.
