Help configuring XFree86 on YDL 2.3 (black screen & failed XFree86 -configure)
 
I fired up an old Mac with YDL 2.3 on it today, but I now have a different monitor than before. It's an IBM G74. When x starts, I get the "black screen" "signal out of range" deal. So I start up in runlevel 3 to a command prompt. When I run XFree86 -configure (as root) it fails, saying: "can't find drivers, configure failed".

So, how do I configure XFree86 to work?
Do I need to install drivers, if so how?

PS It worked fine with the old Mac monitor.
PPS The info below in sig is for another Linux machine. Let me know if more info on the old Mac is needed.
