Make sure that when you run Xconfigurator that you use the command line as follows:
Xconfigurator --expert
this will allow you to mannually choose the Xfree server.  Choose S3V server. Hope this helps.  If you do not use the --expert switch on the command line, some distributions will install the SVGA libraries.  You may need to install the S3V server from your original media as it may not be present on your system.
