    VGA is analog, DVI-D is digital.

    DVI-I carries both DVI-D and VGA pins. If your mobo has a DVI-I connector, you can tap the VGA pins with an adapter.

    If the mobo only has DVI-D out, you need to buy a new monitor.

    The .pdf manual for the Beagle XM says thie "The analog portion of DVI, which provides RGB analog signals, is not supported by the BeagleBoard. Buying a DVI to VGA adapter connector will not work on a VGA display. You will need an active DVI-D to VGA adapter." So, you need the active adapter or a new monitor with DVI or HDMI input.

    A typical passive DVI-I to VGA adapter won't work. HDMI is digital only. It is electrically compatible with single-linked DVI-D, but does not have the extra pins needed to support analog output that a DVI-I connection would have.
