cannot edit xorg.conf to fix "Input unsupported" message


I am trying to install debian as a DC but on reboot I get the "Input not supported " error. I switched to virtual input and login to try to edit the xorg.conf file but created a new file instead because the xorg.conf file is open by the installation. How do I close it so I can edit it and continue. I am afraid to start a new file as I am not sure what is in the ools one.

That's how I got to the vitual console - anyway thanks, but I had already switched to squeeze and the installation went without a hitch.
