Where is this spec sheet?  And if it is in the reconfigure utility, how do I
print it out if I cannot get it to boot up correctly?  Is it available
somewhere online where I can get to it via windows?

I did answer the questions about my monitor in the reconfigure utility, but
that did not help.  I got close when I disabled dri and int10.  It booted up
into x and then x crashed and kept trying to restart and crash.  It would
say, "It has stopped x number of times in the last 2 minutes"

Are you saying some of my questions are arcane?  How can I be more specific.
I would really like to get this to work, but nothing now.
