Well try using 8bpp or 1 bpi, you may get fuzzy image ;-(

I had problem with ATI with earlier X4 (See my bug report).  I tried
again with new X4.1 and still can not get working.  So I use that box
for console only :-)

I guss if I find time I might get X3 installed again for ATI box.  (I
have main Linux box with tdfx.)
