   I have an ATI VGA Wonder and I have no trouble using it in 800x600 16 colors
   mode under X11R3 Version 1.1 (386/ix 2.02)

   However 1024x768 is not supported.

I think that my problem is that there are several versions of the ATI
VGA card and the version I have is not supported under X11R3 ISC
version 1.1.  The next release X11R3 ver 1.2 is suppose to fix this.
It boggles my brain a little bit that changes where made to the board
that make it incompatible with previous versions.  The next release of
ISC X11R3 is due out around the end of this month.
