(No attachments; the list software sometimes removes them.  Also, x11 
configuration questions are probably best sent to the freebsd-x11 list.)

First, rename or delete your xorg.conf and try startx again.  If it'll 
autoconfig correctly for your hardware, problem solved.

If not, or if you want an xorg.conf, a current sample for an ancient 
GeForce2 follows.  It assumes you have dbus and hal running, and you may 
need to change the BusID value to match your system.
