I installed a ATI Radeon R100 QD card on a Desktop. My setup is:

  System: Dell PE 300
  Monitor: Dell 1702FP
  Graphics Card: ATI Radeon R100 QD

To get this to work at all I turned off 'dri', manually set the HorizSync and
VertRefresh and put a Modes line in the Depth 16 display section. I have it
working with KDE but running when Xorg -config xorg.conf, the background grid
waves around. Under KDE it works fine. Does any one know if this is a problem
for the monitor? Second I would like to fix the default background problem as I
like to use twm to upgrade.

The changed parts of xorg.conf:

Section "Module"
        Load  "dbe"
#       Load  "dri"                <----------
        Load  "extmod"
        Load  "glx"
### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
        HorizSync    30.0 - 80.0   <----------
        VertRefresh  75.0          <----------
        Option      "DPMS"
Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
#       DefaultDepth 16            <----- get selected by default
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
                Modes     "1280x1024"  <----- required

Thanks for any ideas.
