How would I switch from XFree86 to Xorg in debian?

I want to switch, but I have no idea how. I don't even know where to begin. Can someone help me out with this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Personally I would stick with xfree86 until xorg is officially packaged by Debian which I guess will be sometime after Sarge becomes stable.

Here's a guide:

Though I would wait because Debian will move to once Sarge is out the door...

I am using xorg, xlibs, -dev packages from ubuntu, and xserver-xorg package from (down now ) because I get only ~500fps with ubuntus package. xfree is removed. and I have no problems so far.
