By "Jumps all over the place" I mean that each event from the mouse causes the pointer to move to a random location on the screen, until (presumably) something gets confused and it sticks somewhere, usually in the top right corned. David's earlier reply helped, and in fact my next question was going to be about the settings for 2.6, so you answered that already! One last thing, I stuck an old Matrox Mystique card into a spare PCI slot last time I had the box open. I'd like to use it for my X display because it has XVideo support. When I specify the "mga" driver and the BusID and start the X server, the machine hangs. Is this because I've already initialised the onboard ATI card as a framebuffer?
