First thanks for all your efforts in providing a free operating system for so many 
I have tried to install for the first time 4.8 on an IBM PL300 with a TFT monitor (IBM 
9493)  also on a compaq 4000 with IBM G74 monitor. the former machine has a video card 
Number 9  which works under Linux XF86 3.3.6 and 4.2.1 with the savage driver and the 
latter a matrox millenium which works under the mga driver in Linux. For some reason, 
using the same video/monitor settings as I have for both machines using several linux 
version I get a setup of XF86 failure during the installation of FreeBSD this occurs 
for all variations including using standard VGA for both and vesa.

The graphical setup seems to find settings to provide a display though!

Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.

My best regards to all
