Hey. I don't know exactly what causes the problem, but I know that if you
run Xautoconfig and/or Xconfigurator (and set it up differently this time),
it can fix the problem. Basically, it's in the settings. I don't know
where, but it just can't load x windows. I've found that on my 8500/120, it
won't do 16bit color. It'll do 8 or 24, but no 16.
