Okay...here is a description of the problem:


Basically, the symptom is that text consoles are screwed up after
starting X, and in some cases (Trident Cyber*) a completely white x
display.  To reproduce, 'startx' and then 'Ctrl+Alt+F1' and see if the
usual text shows up, of if you get something else (or many something esles).
