Apple PowerBook G4 400MHz xorg.conf Debian Lenny

More of a self note so I can find it again someday...

If you aren't getting X with a default Debian Lenny install on a 400MHz Apple PowerBook G4 Titanium ATI Rage Mobility 128 M6 (got all that Google?)

Try this xorg.conf - the 'Modes' section and the UseModes line are the additions I think - I kept tweaking it until it stopped being broken so other things might not quite be standard...
