as I could tell.

I'm just curious, but what does X have to do with
framebuffer in this situation? I did notice that when
I booted up, kudzu said it couldn't find my TNT2
anymore so I just told it to keep the configuration.
But, when I start X it runs only at 640x480 compmared
to 1024x768 from before. And the mouse just flys
around the screen randomly when I try to move it, so I
can't redo my X settings because I can't select my
monitor with the keyboard in redhat-config-xfree86.
