imac xorg config

"video=ofonly" is a kernel parameter.  You can pass kernel parameters at
boot time via yaboot/yaboot.conf, whether or not you've specified it as
an option at install time.  This may be part of your problem.

I've had Rage128 cards before (though not the same imac), and the
things I think I tweaked were dri and fbdev in the x config file.

If you're not comfortable in the terminal, you may have some difficulty
editing the xorg.conf file manually.  It might be easiest to copy the
xorg.conf file off the CD (if that worked) or try searching for
"xorg.conf imac" and find someone else's config to use (assuming it's
the same revision imac).

Good luck!
