Thanks to everyone for their responses. I swapped to a Cirrus Logic
CL-GD5430 and have a working X. 
The new server installation software is very helpful in building a working
config file. The last time I installed X, I had to edit the config by
hand, referencing the driver database and other docs to get it right.
If you have the manual for your monitor and video card in hand you come
out the other end of the installation script with a working config file.
Good work!

I installed fvwm2 but still get the xterm that comes as the default. I
used to know who and where the config files were, but can't seem to find
my way around. Where should I start (after Matt's book and usr/doc)?

Thanks In Advance! :-)
