Description of problem:
I am running an a 850 athlon. 256 m of ram. with a ATi Rage fury Pro AGP.
First off when I can't get it to install in graphical mode. I works for a
little bit but wil randomly frease leaving junky pixels around the mouse.
So i just intall in text mode.
When i select my card and specs in Xconfigurator and try to test it wont
come up. when i startx it dosent come up either. The mouse was acting
funny and i had heard that some mice caused ati glitches so i buoght a USB
mouse. I didn't help. I put in a second video card. Diamond mulitimedia
pci (voodoo chipset) and X came up on that Fine. (actully it didn't come
up right but it had the same bug on my old machine and know how to fix
it.) So i am convenced it is the ATI Rage fury pro. sorry i don't have my
X log with me today but i'll post them soon.

the results of lspci -n
XFree86 4.0.3 unfortunately does not contain direct support for the
ATI Rage Fury Pro 1002:5446 (TF), as the PCI ID's were not known at the
time of the release of 4.0.3. XFree86 4.1.0 which is in rawhide
currently, and will be released as erratum for Red Hat Linux 7.1
soon, does support this card though.
In the mean time, you can force the card to work, by using the "Chipset"
option in the config file to force the PCI ID to 5246 instead. This
should work as an interim workaround.
Oh, I almost forgot. The config file you attached is the wrong one.
The proper config file for XFree86 4.x is XF86Config-4.
