>> Diamond Stealth 32 VLB & XFree86 3.1 HELP !!!<<

Has anyone got a Diamond Stealth 32 VLB (2MB DRAM) to work with XFree86 3.1.

Note: I am using the "freq" program to set the third clock.

I first tried to use the "et4000w32p" chipsets, but had the following problems:
        -Everything on the screen was blurry, especially when I moved a window.
        -When I exit from X, the text is all garbled up.

I then tried to use the regular SVGA server, but with no luck !

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. LILO help <><><><><><>

I just installed RH6 on a box that only had a 50MB DOS partition to
begin with.
During the RH install, I used Disk Druid to set up additional
partitions as follows:
/       ~1 GB
swap    ~40 MB
/usr    ~500 MB
/boot   ~10 MB

When prompted, I told it to install LILO into the "/boot" partition.

Upon restarting the system after the install, it booted into DOS again
from my origional active DOS partition.

I tried booting from the emergency rescue disk that I was prompted to
create during the install, but it gives me an error "0x10" and stops.

I can boot using the RH "boot.img" boot disk, hitting F4, and then
inserting the "rescue.img" disk made from dosutils on the RH CD, but I
have no idea what to do from there.

I want to make the thing boot with LILO and ask whether to start DOS or
boot Linux (as default). I realize now that I probably shoud've just
told it to install LILO into the MBR.

Please tell me there is an easy/painless way to get LILO to do this
without re-installing totally.

Many thanks!
