Hi Robert,

Try to leave that field empty. If you only have one video card in your
computer you should not have to specify the bus ID.

If that should not work for some reason: You can find the bus ID by
running "lspci" and checking the line that describes your video card.
For example, I have an integrated card that uses the same driver and the
line is:

0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)

The first number is the bus ID; for the xserver it has to be entered as
"PCI:0:2:0" (without the quotation marks). Like I said, normally you
should not have to bother with this. You will probably also be asked
about "video ram"; here, too, it should be enough to accept what the
dialog proposes, or to leave the field empty.

Report back if you encounter any problems with the defaults.
