With a formatted floppy in the drive.

Code:
mount /dev/fd0 /floppy
cp /var/log/XFree86.0.log /floppy/
cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /floppy/
umount /floppy
As root of course, could you post both of them you may have to split the log file to get under the posting limit or if you have a website somewhere you can put the files and post a link in the thread.
