xorg debian


Hi, I have a question about this guide http://incubator.vislab.usyd.edu.au/...catname=Debian What do the lines in host.def do and should they have # first or am I suposed to remove that, cuz I would think the extra lines wouldn't do anything if # is in front (commented out or what you call it).

Well I'll go watch some of my startrek episodes (back in 1h), realy hope someone can help me whit this cuz when I followed the guide I used the # marks but when I typed make World I get alot of warnings and some errors at the end. I didn't dare type make install for fear of destroying something. I would realy like to get xorg working cuz as far as I know it is the only way to get support for my ATI mobility U2.
