	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.
