I beg to differ. Both XF86Setup and Sax used to hang on the 2.2.13 kernel 
with my ATI 4MB Xpert at work. The reason was that kernel frame buffer was 
turned on by default and that board was not compliant with the current 
frame buffer standard. Once the frame buffer support was turned off both 
Sax and XF86Setup worked.
