I am trying to get X running with a Diamond Stealth
VRAM video board.  Everything else in Linux works 
like a charm (Cheers to Linus and everyone else!)

Clock.exe says I have 25.2 27.1 30.9 and 31.1 for
clocks.  Whatever I do in Xconfig, I seem to get 
multiple copies of individual screen items (ie. 5 cursors,
all staggered down the screen - sounds like a sync problem.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan

Sorry, but a Diamond Stealth will not work with the X386 you can get on
Linox. It does only support reasonable fast SVGAs. The Stealth is a S3 86C911
based accelerated VGA, and hence not supported. Note that commecrial versions
of X386 do support this chipset.
