Q1 .I am using S3ViGRE/GX2 AGP-BUS display card ,
    At first the installer chose XF86_S3 for me
    but it doesn't work.
    Then I changed to XF86_SVGA server , it works.
   
    But how to increase the resolution of
    Virtual screen instead of "320 200" ?

    B'cos it only works properly with this setting.

------ **  ------
Section "Screen"
    Driver      "svga"
    Device      "Generic VGA"
    Monitor     "Generic Multisync"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes      "800x600"    
        ViewPort    0 0
        Virtual     320 200
    EndSubsection
EndSection
------ ** -------

Q2. When I type "X" , X window appears and hang out !!
    When I tried "startx -- /usr/X11R6/bin/X3_SVGA" ,
    it works ?!
    How to fix this problem ?

to stop using the 320x200 resolution, delete the Virtual Line from your file.
Section "Screen"
        Driver      "svga"
        Device      "Generic VGA"
        Monitor     "Generic Multisync"
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       8
            Modes      "800x600"      
            ViewPort    0 0  
        EndSubsection
    EndSection
As for the server make sure the "X" is linked with the correct server.
