Yes.  I am open to suggestions.  I think including Neals FAQ in the Debian
package would be nice.  We can add X treating questions to it first.

The issue with X drivers is the same as with Linux, as these are bare bone
hardware accesses and not related to the kernel, except for the following:


So unless you need one of the modules/drivers/extensions above, you can use
the same configuration as under Linux.  Also consider the xserver-* packages
of X 3.3.6.

It might be possible to add DRI support to Mach.  It's available for Linux
and BSD and doesn't seem to be too complex, but I don't know.
