Thank you for the info.

Isn't there a downloadable or at the very least a bookmarkable
document the I can use so I don't have to keep pestering yall 
with questions?

After trying this command there is a couple of question. The config
program is asking for the bus ID of my video card. How would I 
find out what the bus ID is? My creator card is located in the only 
sbus slot it can be plugged into. The lower right slot as you into the 
open machine from the front.  Also how much memory typically 
came on these cards? 

I went through the config program and just hit enter on things that 
I was not sure on. At the end I get an error message:

start_configlet: configlet in path /usr/share/configlet/xserver-common is bad
<string>:25: DeprecationWarning: xreadlines is deprecated; use 'for line of 

There is apparently a problem with xserver-common. I will attempt to reload 
it unless anyone has thoughts on this.
