This is the way that I did it:
1). saved a copy of libvgahw.a from my Fedora 3 disc
in a partition that I could mount in Fedora 4.
2). logged in via KDE/Gnome and executed a
terimal session under the KDE desktop.
3). mounted the partition that I had saved the
file in (I use two seperate disk drives).
4). saved the current copy of libvgahw.a and
the did a 'cp' of the Fedora 3 version
to the '/usr/X11R6/lib/modules' DIR.
You millage may vary a bit, but that is how
I managed to replace mine. I did solve the
problem. I am using a Matrox G450 video card.
