Hi List,

I got my hands on a new laptop at the weekend.

Advent 5372.

Pro 700 MHz
Mem 128 MB
HD    6GB
DVD Drive.
and Windows ME.

As soon as I got it out of the box I installed FreeBSD 4.2-release. But I am 
having some problems with the X Config. It uses a SiS 630 Graphics Chip 8Mb. 
But I can't get it to work. A lad at work said I should try use a frame 
buffer config. How do I achieve this??

Any pointers greatly received.

Jason Corcoran.
