Yeah, that's the right driver....  I have been using that driver on my
laptop for almost 2 years now.  I remember when it came out.  Troy Engel
helped me out with that one.

There is no specific X server for this card.  Just make sure you have
XFree86-4.2.0-8 and family installed.

So what is the problem??  I sense you want to punch the machine.... but I
don't know why...

run Xconfigurator, answer everything to the best of your ability and be

I have installed and upgraded 7.3 about 10 times so far without a hitch,
both clean server installs and upgrades....  In fact I am doing one as I
type this on a client's machine.

Have Fun!
