=09With XF4, i think that you must use "ati" driver (in
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/ati_drv.o) in your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
in this way:

=09Section "Device"
=09=09Identifier=09"Ati Mach64"
=09=09BoardName=09"Ati Mach64"

=09Can you completly install the XF4 port ?? That is, can you compile all
the XF4 port and install it?? Or the problem exists when you start the X
