fglrxconfig problem

Ok, i got Debian (Sarge) installed and i ran fglrxconfig to configure all the video stuff and i thought i did everything right and when i would log out and do startx it would just give me a bunch of errors (sorry i dont remember them, i will post them in a bit). I was just wondering if you guys could give me some tips for things that need to be off or on in order for the xserver to work. I know i read somewhere that agpgart has to be on.

I have a Athlon XP 2800 and a ATI Radeon 9600xt

If you need more info just ask.

I'd say you picked wrong options when you run fglrx. You should have backup of your former XF86Config-4 file in /etc/X11, use that to see if your X server works with it. If it does, run fglrx again, and pay close attention to questions of your monitor, and refer monitor manual for proper values.

Atleast when I installed fglrx, and X didn't start afterwards, it complained about missing screens which was fixed when I checked monitor Horizontal and Vertical Sync from the manual.

Hopefully this helps.
