Where do I find the hardware compatibility/driver lists for the version(s)
of X now in use on FreeBSD?  I have a card that's failing (dead fan; I
*WILL* try to replace) and purchased a nice, cheap MSI card with an
nVIDIA GEFORCE chipset.  It provides a character display but on startx
I get "no screens detected."

The card is an MSI D512E; the chipset is GEFORCE 8400GS.

Any further info will be appreciated.
