Editing locked files from Knoppix/LiveCD


Hey all, installed Fedora core 1 [kicks ass so far] but I screwed up on my XConfig but I know what to change. The problem is I can't edit it, even from another distro. How can one edit files owned by root? Thanks.

Nevermind, am reinstalling again. Is there an easy way to install the NVidia drivers? [tried the listed ways to no avail]

Boot into safemode (type "linux init 3" if you are booting from floppy). CD to the folder where the Nivida script is and type "export CC=gcc32" then sh NVIDIA **********.run. After it has been installed type "startx". Once you are on your desktop open the XFree86 config file which is in etc/X11, changed the driver from "nv" to "nvidia" take out the line "dri" from modules and check that in modules you have "load glx" if not type it in a new line. Reboot and you will see the nvidia splash screen.
