Hi,
I have trouble during FreeBSD installation in two areas:

1. Installing X window:
	I reached upto the graphical configuration. I am unable to pick 
	the proper graphic card/chip
	I have a Gateway 2000 CrystalScan monitor 17"
	30-64 and 50-120 frequencies
	and STB Velocity and STB Virge/GX card

	I was able to install an start X as well (by typing startx)
	But I am not able to select ANY OTHER MODE except 320x200
	I tried everything but it always starts in 320x200 mode (my monitor 
	can take upto 1248x1024. When I run /stand/sysinstall and configure X 
	thru the XF6Setup, it somehow knows the proper graphic mode to pick, since
	it sppears like a 800x600 mode

2. Installing/configuring for PPP protocol
	I am trying to dial out to my ISP via modem.
	when I type pppd it says the kernel does not support PPP
	I have installed comms/seyon. When asked during installation if I 
	want PPP/SLIP I selected yes. It then asked if I wanted to configure for
	PPP. When I said yes, it went into ppp mode, which won't dial out.
	Please help me out on this, since this is very time critical to my project
:(((



Thanks you very very much
