there is no applicable X server in debian 2.

there is packaged XFree 3.3.3 on Debian Japanese cite, but i think
it is packaged for slink (debian 2.1)

just go to ftp.xfree86.org, grab precompiled X server
for linux_glibc (X3DL.tgz?), get SVGA server from the
distribution, replace X server in /usr/X11R6/bin with
X3DL and that's it. Well, XF86Config you'd have to
set by hands...

works for me
