  After looking through the log a bit more, the problem is that X is
setting my VideoRam to 8M.  I have 32M.  This seems to be a known
problem with this chipset.  Below is a link to a thread talking about
this.  I DID try setting the VideoRam in the device to 32768.  The log
then does show it is trying to use it but later in the log it says
"Maximum space available for video modes 832.

 Does anyone know if there is a fix for this. I can run in 1024x768 but
only in 8 bit color mode.
