Question Starting with TV-out


I have an ATI All-In-Wonder card installed in my machine running Mandrake 8.2 I CANNOT get a tv-signal from X. As soon as the machine logs on, the television goes blank. Some research (read: enough reading time on monitor to make me sterile) showed that X didn't really know what to do in this situation. I tried to edit the XF86Config file as best I could, but to no avail. I setup a new Section "Device" and "Screen" and "Monitor" and "ServerLayout", and yet X mocks me! (question: does X use XF86Config or XF86Config-4?)
I really only want to run this as a dedicated DVD/DivX/MAME machine while I'm working on my G4 Mac.
Does someone have an X-config file for the ATI All-in-wonder Pro (using RAGE 128 chipset) that is known to boot x properly that they could send me? Or, tell me exactly what needs to be done to make this work? Many many thanks in advance.
