Re: video card


         I agree with Uncle Meat: its worth trying both XF86Setup and
xf86config and comparing the XF86Config files they produce in /etc/X11.

        xf86config  creates a file with much more information in it, but
doesn't have the latest keyboard setups.

        I struggled for ages until I got an XF86Config file with the right
resolution choices produced by xf86config; then I cut and pasted the
keyboard and mouse sections from an XF86Config file produced by XF86Setup.

      Not easy!

Best of Luck
