It was installed using one of the options included with the OS.
The system will boot as far as a command prompt where I receive a message about the incorrect driver being installed then back to a command prompt.

Remember, all we know is exactly what you post. Posting exact error messages are good. Telling exactly what you typed/clicked/etc is good. We have no idea of what you installed and how as the question stands.

How to get good answers with your questions about Linux

Undo the editing you did for your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file.

# Configuring X
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO - video cards
The Linux XFree86 HOWTO
Configuring XFree86 for a Non-Specific Linux Distribution
Common X configuring tools:
Debian - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
Mandrake - XFdrake
Redhat 7.3 down - the setup utility leads to several config tools
Redhat 7.3 up - redhat-config-xfree86
You may have these tools:
XF86Setup
XFree86 -configure
Xconfigurator
xf86cfg
xf86config
xconf
ATI Linux drivers
If you need the nVidia driver, you want the Linux IA32 driver
