I use an S3 Virge DX video card and I've heard that using the standard SVGA driver for Xwindows is much faster.  How do I go about changing my video driver, and can I 'un-change' if it doesn't work?

Thanks!

You should have a xf86config in your /usr/X11/bin directory. Use this program to change your video config.
