I have to install Fedora 10, on a "bit older" PC.

Installation was successful, but i can not get X to work.

I did made xorg.conf, but when I run startx, computer blocks, and it have to be reseted.

Video card I have is S3 Virge (PCI video card).

Is it possible to maek it work?

Did the system install the package xorg-x11-drv-s3virge? If not you have to install it from the command line (as root)
Code:
yum install xorg-x11-drv-s3virge
