Hi Ryan,

I am running sarge/testing on two of my systems both with XFree86 4.2.0 and I am
having no problems with it.  Just add the lines from Branen's page to your
/etc/apt/source.list file and do an apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.

That should do the trick for you.  If you need any help let me know.
