I tried running it several times.
I think I know what my error is.
I'm probably inputing the
incorrect address for the 
video card.  lspci -vv states
that the address of the video
card is 01:00.0  
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 wants
the address in the form
what is the trick here?Perhaps
if I can input the correct addy
in the correct form, this
mess will clear up. Thanks
again.  -iggy

ps.  Sorry about the 80
characters.  I've been writing
theses emails on the Palm OS.
