Ooh!  /me wants a look, since X 4.2.0 and 4.2.1 have a slight problem 
with the Rage 128 on my laptop--they refuse to run at any resolution 
other than the laptop LCD's native 1600x1200.  They say this should be 
fixed in X 4.3, but that's months away.  X 4.1.0 didn't have this 
problem.  I've tried the "IgnoreEDID" parameter, no dice.  The thing is 
capable of running at modes other than 1600x1200 with the VESA 
framebuffer module.  I'd like to run at 800x600 sometimes since that'd 
make it easier/quicker to watch movies and play Xmame or snes9x.
