I have an ATI All-In-Wonder 128 32mg AGP video card. I got the binaries from They were written for the AIW video cards, I was told to
get them and install them...but not sure how to install them.

As for XFree86...after I install it, it takes me to a blank screen, but when
I hold down the mouse button a window pops up and at the top is Twn with a
list of thinds to do, such as exit, ... but I do not get the screen to run
the KDE or Gnome desktop...then there were times after installing it I would
get the message that it couldn't find the default font 'fixed'?

When I run xf86config...I cannot start the KDE or Gnome desktop...I get the
message as stated above...and when I run the XF86cfg there is a picture that
shows up for about 5 seconds that shows a picture of the computer, keyboard,
and a video card...but doesn't last...any help would be great...pleas let me
know if there are any other questions you would like answered..
