Description of problem: startx loaded up fine to using the generic 
video card setting. After I chose my ATI Radeon 9200se card in the 
settings section, startx does not load up anymore. It blinks a couple 
of times and I get a message sayin "no screens found", "no matching 
device section for instance...)
