Hi, I'm looking for some help setting up Xfree86 I'm using a JAX 8241 video card with a s3 805 chip also has a chrontel 8391 clockchip and the ramdec is also meant to be the same setting as the chrontel ch8391 and something about dac 8 bit  and only 15bpp and 16bpp is supported,
My monitor is the mystery I believe it to be 50 - 60 hz
14" color-sonic  apart from that I cant tell much more it may have Vertical refresh rate of 50 -90 and Horizontal of 30 - 48 but I cant be positive of those figures. At the moment I can get to X but its in grey even though I'm using the s3 server hope someone can help I have been using xf86config to do the configuring also I am unable to use SuperProbe without the system locking up, thanks.

ok.  well, if you have your S3 server installed, and you specifically selected it using xf86config...
      make sure you have the symbolic link X in /etc/X11 pointing to /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_S3

      then try to invoke X with the command:
startx -- -bpp 16 (for 16 bit color)

hope it helps!
