<p class=MsoNormal><font size=2 face=Arial><span style='font-size:10.0pt;
font-family:Arial'>I have a beige G3 desktop 233mhz with 512M ram that has an
ATI chipset on the motherboard and an ATI chipset in a PCI VGA card (which the
monitor is attached to).&nbsp; When I use xorgconfig I have to use fbdev as the ati
choice will not work on testing.&nbsp; This gives me a 1280x1024 screen which works
well on a 17&#8221; monitor, but the colors are all wrong.</span></font></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=2 face=Arial><span style='font-size:10.0pt;
font-family:Arial'>When I use Xorg &#8211;configure I get a working
configuration with the ati driver, but the screen is (maybe) 640x480 and that&#8217;s
it.&nbsp; I&#8217;ve tried merging the two files in every combination I can think
of, and am not getting anywhere.</span></font></p>
