Thanks a lot Lowell,
After reducing the secure lever I was able to configure the XFree86 by using
#XFree86 -configure & then
#cp XF86Config.new /etc/X11/XF86Config
(Copying it in common location where XFree86 can find it)
But afterthat, whenever I tried to start the X11 using
the system simply froze??
Also when I tried to test the existing configuration by giving
# XFree86 -xf86config XF86Config.new
It simply frozes the OS???
Any idea whats wrong? Can u please suggest/help asap
