Update, and no-joy: i've added Modes lines, tried different flags.
Still, using the "mga" drivr gives a dark screen; only the "vesa" works.
none of the xorg config toools work. The Matroc Millennium G450
is brand new, so doubt it's the card. The previous card had the
same problem--way to dark--soI got this new card.
