OK, Thanks

Now. I had to put my own XF86Config in /etc/X11 to make it work .
I'm able to start with my own xf86config file, but (I don't know why) it 
doesn't start at 1024x768 (I deleted the other resolution in 
XF86Config-ariel); I tryed with xf86config n it doesn't work either ....


Any idea ?
Thx, 
JoloX
