I can't reach the maintainer of the FrameBuffer-HOWTO.
I had the following comment to make. Hope somebody listens..

Subject: FrameBuffer-HOWTO: XF86_FBDev
Thanks for a great HOWTO!
I have used it (together with other web sources) to get X running on my
Toshiba 1710CDS laptop. Following your instructions, I made it... I am
using RedHat 6.2.
The Mach64 server should but did not work, so I decided to try fbdev.
The ATI Fb support in the kernel did not work for my card, so I changed to
VESA. Booting went fine, but X gave me:
fbdevScreenInit: Invalid Argument
which after having searched a loong time (finally, google found it for me),
could be resolved by changing the Screen section to:
Device "Primary Card"
Monitor "Primary Monitor"
matching my fb mode choice of 800x600x24
This is an X bug, but well worth noting.
Perhaps you should add this to the HOWTO?
