I'm trying to get my r128 to go to 1600x1024 for my monitor.  I have a
blue/white G3.

When I look in /proc/pci I see I have a "Rage 128" card.

[root at isis drivers]# grep -i vga /proc/pci
    VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 RE (rev 0).

So I changed the Driver line in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to use "r128" yet
when I tried start X I got "No devices detected":

	(II) ATI: ATI driver (version 6.4.8) for chipsets: ati
	(II) R128: Driver for ATI Rage 128 chipsets: ATI Rage 128 RE (PCI),
	        ATI Rage 128 RF (AGP), ATI Rage 128 RG (AGP), ATI Rage 128 RK
	        ATI Rage 128 RL (AGP), ATI Rage 128 SM (AGP),
	        ATI Rage 128 Pro PD (PCI), ATI Rage 128 Pro PF (AGP),
	        ATI Rage 128 Pro PP (PCI), ATI Rage 128 Pro PR (PCI),

	(WW) R128: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:16:0) found
	(EE) No devices detected.

Yet in /proc/pci I see:

  Bus  0, device  16, function  0:
    VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 RE (rev 0).
      IRQ 22.
      Master Capable.  Latency=16.  Min Gnt=8.

      I/O at 0x2000 [0x20ff].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0x82000000 [0x82003fff].
