    Have you checked your BIOS? Also, you may have to manually remove *all* references to the old card from your config files.. or re-run your setup programs (i use gentoo, so everything is 'nano -w <config-file>')
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    check that you have correctly configured /etc/X11/XF86Config

    You may find that it still has the onboard (i810?) defs as well as your new ones.

    have fun


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
