Well, its good to ask some obvious questions, so I went a checked. I do
have a /dev/dri/card0 and the permissions are 0666. I am also setting
this up as a system coming straight from RedHat, so I used their .config
when compiling the kernel. They (and I) do have agpgart set as a
module, VIA chipset support built in and ATI Rage 128 and Radeon drivers
set as modules.
I think everying is right, but I may have overlooked something else.
I do think I'll go back and reinstall RH and add XFree86 support to see
if it works there.
