XFree85 3.3.3, RH5.1, and ATI Xpert 98 config problems - help pls !!!

Aloha everyone,
  I have a problem configuring XFree86 3.3.3.  This is my problem,
basically.  My wife was very nice to me this Christmas, getting me a 19"
SONY Multiscan400PS monitor and an ATI Xpert 98 8 meg PCI video card to go
with it.  That card is supported under XFree86 3.3.3, so I downloaded the
*.rpm files from RedHat. Everything installed correctly (although I had to
use the -force switch on a couple of the files), but when I run the
XF86Setup, I never get to the part where vidtune kicks in.  After the
configuration is completed I get a window telling me that it's trying to
call up the server, which is where I have the problem.
  It never gets the server, in my case, the XF86_Mach64 server, started.
The program always fails at that point.  My monitor has the following specs:

    Hor:     39-94Hz
    Vert:    48-160Hz

    (These are just a few of the higher resolutions my monitor can handle).

If anyone else has a SONY monitor, preferrably the Multiscan400PS (or 500PS)
and have it configured right, please give me some help.  I'll check this
newsgroup, or you can e-mail me at:

                                                                Thanks very
much in advance,

Bud Jones


1. ATI Xpert@Play AGP vs. ATI Xpert@Play 98 AGP

Just wondering if anyone out there is using the either of these cards with
RedHat 5.2 or xfree86 3.3.2.  On RH's compatibility list it says the

What I would really like to know is this : is there a difference between

with RH 5.2.  Any suggestions of other relatively cheap (around $50) video
cards that are agp and work with RH 5.2 (out of the box) would be really
