1. Help: Number Nine Imagine 128 II rev 2 (PCI)

I'm trying to get x3.3 for Linux (2.0.30 slackware kernel) working with
my #9, and Optiquest (by ViewSonic) Monitor.

I've found the right monitor section in the
/usr/X11/lib/X11/doc/Monitors file:

Section "Monitor"
 Identifier "Monitor"
 VendorName "ViewSonic"
 ModelName "17"
 BandWidth 135.0
 HorizSync 30.0-82.0
 VertRefresh 50-160
 ModeLine   "640x480" 25.175 640  664  760  800  480  491  493  525
 ModeLine   "640x480" 31.500 640  660  684  812  480  485  488  508
 ModeLine   "800x600" 40.000 800  804  932  980  600  605  609  624
 ModeLine   "800x600" 50.000 800  820  940  1024 600  605  611  634

EndSection    

The vid card part from xf86config:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Video"
    VendorName  " "
    BoardName   " "
    VideoRam    4096
    Ramdac      "ibm_rgb528"
    Clockchip   "ibm_rgb5xx"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Driver      "accel"
    Device      "Video"
    Monitor     "Monitor"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes       "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1280x1024"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
EndSection

I can get it running the the default 320x200x8 (ack!)
If any of you are running a #9 r2, could you post your XF86 config's?

Thanks!
Dan
