the file is there!
when we installed debian we used the desktop package selection, and file 
server  package selection. 
when x-window-system was being configured by dpkg it asked the following 
it asked one do you want to have your video card dectected  manualy.
we said yes.
it was unable to do this.
it then gave us a list of cards to choice from.
ati was on the list of cards.
we then selected ati.
it then took us to the next step witch was moniter and resalution 
 it then asked 2. what type of moniter do you have.
are you using a lcd display.
we set everything up as it should be there for type of display and 
moniter size.
we then choice  are resalution setting of 1024/768 this works fine.
everything in x is working but ut2004 under linux.
we are able to get it to load in software emulation mode.  it is also at 
this time working as a server.
thanks for all the feed back. 
I hope you can tell me more!
