Re: Configuring Xfree86 for X display

I would try one of two things.  First run SuperProbe and see what linux 
sees your card as.  Edit your XF86Config file to reflect what you have 
learned from the SuperProbe.  Second run the XF86Setup program check the 
video card data base to see if the card is in their.  If it is it will 
tell you the various settings you need to set to get it working.  
I hope this helps but if it doesn't don't blame me.  The usual disclamer.
