The proc "directory" is also very handy if you want to dynamically configure
an x server for specific cards . . .

Take a look at the hardware detection scripts from RedHat.
Mandrake have the same ones, probably unmodified.
Mandrake's Xconfigurator (6.0+) makes a nice and tidy
XF86Config without many comments, and just one modeline for
each resolution. I guess RH6.0+ has the same one, but I
be bothered to check. It would mean me getting out of my
and hacking into some other guy's test-machine ;)
I've transferred my harddrive between computers quite a bit
now, along with my Banshee. X works without modifications,
unless the monitors are terribly different. Linux isn't
when it comes to what slot you've got the cards in.
NEVER run PII-optimized kernels on K6, though :/
