Not sure if you got this taken care of yet, but one more time.
so I ran that from root@computer:/#/etc/X11/XF86Config and get the following prompt
-bash: /etc/X11/XF86Config : Permision Denied
If I am logged in to X, how do I logout?
That is just a text file, you have to first say what you want to do with it. You want to edit it?? then you would go
# pico /etc/X11/XF86Config
pico is kinda like say notepad
Do you want to read it??
# less /etc/X11/XF86Config
If you havent got this yet and you checked the CD and reinstalled everything and you are looking back at this post for help, go back to where you were and run
Just like that. But first try to run
like he said because the vesa driver may work with your card, you shouldn't have to copy anything first, X works right out the box with my ATI card, if it looks like you are going into X then it flashes and goes back to the bash screen with a error run 'xf86config'
