Here is a quick and dirty way of getting your card detected and getting x up fast. The command below will build a skeleton file. XFree86 -configure Step 2: copy the file to /etc/X11 and remove the .new extension. cp XF86Config.new /etc/X11/XF86Config Then either go into /stand/sysinstall and do a post configuration setup. Select X server and use ncurses based interface to edit your monitor and keyboard settings. Double check all the settings to make sure they are correct. Instead of going into /stand/sysinstall you could actually use: xf86cfg --textmode which is the same ncurses based installer. The advantage for myself is that almost all possible tweaks and settings are set inside the file for tuning at a later date. You can go and use the same ncurses installer via /stand/sysinstall but it wont add all the settings. Just my 2 cents worth, hope it helps. Pete ===== ESCape with VI.
