I have an old box I've been messing with. I had it running X on
FreeBSD 5.3, seemingly well enough. I decided to move to 6.1,
installed more RAM, a bigger hard disk and a CD-RW drive that
can see CD-Rs (unlike the original old SCSI CD drive) and chose
an "install everything" from CD. Things went well ... until I
tried bringing up X.

Since then, I've been studying, hunting through archives, etc.
and have become mired in too much data. So, I'm asking for help.

Here's what happens when I configure and then text X ...

vulcan# Xorg -configure

Xorg detected your mouse at device /dev/sysmouse.
Please check your config if the mouse is still not
operational, as by default Xorg tries to autodetect
the protocol.

Your xorg.conf file is /root/xorg.conf.new

To test the server, run 'X -config /root/xorg.conf.new'

I don't really know how to use gdb effectively, but this makes
it look like the ATI driver is getting tangled up processing
the configuration file to me. ???
