You should install XFree86 3.1.  Its Mono, VGA16 and SVGA servers include
(unaccelerated) support for Mach64's.  For an accelerated server, you'll
have to wait until XFree86 >=3.2.

1. Problems to set XWindow with an ATI Mach64 Turbo Card

Can anybody help me ! I have tried to setup XWindows with the xf86config
from the slackware distribution of Linux 1.2.x but it doesn't work.

My Display is a standard 17" Trust display multisync and I have an ATI
Mach64 Graphics Pro
Turbo with 1Mo of RAM.

Perhaps is it because I am not able to set the RAMDAC and clocks settings.
How shall I do
to make X work ?

Thanks to anybody who can help me.
