The best idea would be to open both files and compare them. Look at your original and see the received file. I think wherever is ati, replace it

I haven't done much so I guess just reinstall?

Would this have been the problem though (from the original file(

Actually in xconfig it list this:
Section "Device"
BusID "2:9:0"
Driver "nv"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "sw_cursor" "on"
Screen 0
EndSection

Section "Device"
BusID "2:9:0"
Driver "fbdev"
Identifier "Device[fbdev]"
Option "ShadowFB" "off"
Screen 0
EndSection

Section "Device"
BusID "2:9:0"
Driver "vga"
Identifier "Device[vga]"
Option "VGAClocks"
Option "KGAUniversal"
Screen 0
EndSection


Are there too many devices? I noticed just one on your file.

Maybe they were causing a conflict?

I believe it wasn't really successful
Here is another option, however. Try doing it from installation option. Reboot with install DVD. choose installation then repair installed then auto

Or I sux? I am pretty new so that could be it. Not saving the original file was pretty dumb.

Should I choose to skip configure the graphics part during installation and wait until I can install the correct drivers or does that even matter

Check your NVIDIA CD. They maybe included drivers for Linux
