If you selected an accelerated server, you can now enter the RAMDAC settings, as shown in Figure 5.19. Some SVGA servers also support RAMDACs. If you're not using an accelerated server, you can simply type q and press Enter to omit specification of a RAMDAC. Otherwise, type the number associated with the RAMDAC used by your card and press Enter. Determining the correct number may pose a bit of a puzzle. The descriptions given in the screen specify RAMDAC chips used on particular cards. If you can conveniently view your card, you can inspect it to see if it contains any of the listed chips. If it's not convenient to view your card, type q and press Enter to omit specification of a RAMDAC. X will autodetect most RAMDACs, so omitting the specification will not likely impair the performance of your video hardware.
