Unhappy Mandrake Configure X Problem

Mandrake 8.2
Asus A7V MB
ATI All In Wonder 128 Pro (32MB)4X AGP Video Card
Creative DXR3 Decoder board
Samsung Syncmaster 950P Monitor
SBLive MP3+ Soundcard
Maxtor 40gb Ata 100 hard drive
At the end of installation when trying to configure X whether I select 4.2.0 with or without acceleration and select "test" > I get a quick "no such module" (??) message and the screen goes into standby.Have to reboot at that point. Tried to use 3.3.6 but get some error message regarding lib files. Have gone into the XF86Configuration file via MC and and entered the info for the monitor and the video card.After saving this file is there a command I should run like I do after editing the Liloconfig file? After rebooting and typing "startx" I get "invalid hostname" error message. If I type startkde I get messages "cannot open display" server and no such file messages. Wish I could be more specific but it's been a long day.This card works fine in Windows and have it running in BeOS. I have Mandrake installed on an old machine with a 4mb Matrox card -- had no problems there.I'd like to get this working so I can dive back into Linux again.Thank's- Dave

hmmmm sounds like a bug in the DCOP "cannot open display 0:0" is a common thing when something is wrong with the Desktop Comunication protocol.
but on the other hand. u might check your hostname /etc/hosts
I'm just wild guessing.
I hope it helps out a little

For the hell of it I decided to try and install Mandrake 8.2 on my other puter with a Soyo K7V Dragon Plus motherboard,an ATI All In Wonder Radeon 32mb AGP card and a SBlaster Audigy soundcard.During install it didn't detect the sound card but when I rebooted I noticed it loaded the Audigy driver. When it came time to configure X > I selected 4.2 with acceleration > test > gave the same error message again but after that the test screen showed up > I selected yes/ok? > then I got an "out of sync range" floating across the screen > rebooted > it booted into GUI just fine.Will edit the monitor info when I back into it again. STILL determined to get Linux installed on my Asus machine with the All In Wonder 128 Pro 32mb AGP card.I will have to try again becauseI had to wipe out the installation and have to start over again.When I get organized I will compare the config files between the two machines. I would like to have posted the XF86Config file but I could only get to the info from Midnight Commander > clueless as to being able to save it to a floppy so I could post it from Windows. Thank's for your help- Tuzinor
