 Now that you've got it installed, you can try to configure your good video
card (after you take a break from messing with X, of course!).  Figuring
things out is easier with a full system already installed than with an
installer.  Besides, if things go wrong and your keyboard is locked out (and
you can't ssh in to fix it) you can just reboot, and you don't have to
re-install or anything that takes a long time.  (If you're using ext3
instead of ext2, you don't even have to fsck.)

 BTW, the Cirrus Logic vid card is a decent piece of hardware, and you can
do 1024x768 @ 16bits/pixel with it.  Setting up your XF86Config-4 file to do
that might be a good step to learn more about how the config file works,
since that's something that's likely to work.

 Happy hacking :)
