I found this on the Fujitsu web site FAQ for your monte carlo computer.

Milan, Montego, Monte Carlo - Known Windows® 98 Limitations

1. Milan, Montego

Reason: There is no CD-ROM drive available on these units.
Solution: You can purchase aCD-ROM drive to connect via PCMCIA or Parallel Port and then installWindows 98.

Milan, Montego, Monte Carlo

Issue: You are experiencing video problems after upgrading to Windows 98.
Reason: Possible DirectX problems. Drivers included in Windows 98 have not been fully tested.
Solution: You can download the latest certified drivers from the Chips & Technologies website.
The chipset is 65548. These drivers have not been tested on our system, but may resolve your issue.   ".......

Looks like you have the same chipset as us toshiba users..
Try using the method described on our other forum describing
using the XChips server, which is for your chipset.
Instructions for how to link it to your x startup are posted.

Well now isn't this interesting ( btw ke4 thank you very much for taking some time on this with me )...

Fujitsu is saying it's a C&T controller eh? Hmmm...

I discovered a nice little utility on my knoppix 3.3 disk called lspci which, according to the man page, is 'a utility for displaying information about all PCI buses in the system and all devices connected to them.' ( You listenin' John? It's only about 30K I think... *wink wink*  :D  )

lspci identifies it as a VGA compatible Trident Microsystems TGUI 9660/938x/969x (rev d3), also known as one of the Trident ProVidia series.

So anyway I've tried using both the Xchips and the Xtrident servers from the link posted elsewhere, but still no luck.

NEXT??  ???

No answer, just a correction: vga=771 means 800x600 with 256 colors (not 256K).
