Okay, I seem to have it running.  I checked my notes and discovered that my 
attempt to create an outdated config file was done on an earlier Sarge 
install attempt.  There were no outdated config files on my present Debian 

GNOME was the problem.  Under "Desktop Preferences" there was a selection for 
screen resolution.  That screen resolution was set for 800x600.  I still get 
that funny band when I boot, but it's blue instead of black now.  
Nevertheless, I've got 1024x678 resolution.  Thanks for the help.
