Ah good. You're off to a decent start. At this point I would have a
look at one of the 2 Xorg config apps (they escape me off hand - but
I'm sure one of the fine list folks will lend that to you).
OR - edit the Xorg conf file by hand - if you are a newb, then I
strongly suggest the Xorg conf utils (Here again, unless one of the
fine folks can paste to you what the approximate lines out to be).
Here I can't help much, my FBSD boxen are all Non-X.
Anyways, I'm out for a few hours - good luck mate.
