Thanks, I did that.  Set XSERVER = ati, now it starts to load x, says it
is using /tmp/XF86Config.1, then fails.

Any idea where to go from here?  How do I check to be sure it is pulling
the custom config?

Maybe I should just ship one of these to someone who knows what they are
doing :-)  The only reason I care is 2 of the schools I am hoping to
convert over the summer have all Indigo vintage iMacs.
