I found what my problem was: X was freezing while probing for my
videocard (S3 Trio3D).  I still don't know why it would work properly
with 2.2.14, though.

I had to specify the videochip, ramdac and clockchip in XF86Config to
work around it.

Now everything works.  Yay!

1. Upgraded to kernel 2.4.3, now X freezes my machine...

And when I mean "freeze", I mean FREEZE.  The screen goes black, CAPS
LOCK and NUM LOCK no longer work, network card stops transmitting,
etc...  I even have to hold the power button for 15 seconds to get my PC
to turn off.

Everything works flawlessly in text-mode, though.

Do I need to recompile something else?  Get a newer version of XF86?
Revert to 2.2?

I'm using X 3.3.6 that came with Caldera 2.4, if that helps.
