Please post your XF86Config file.

Please make sure it is that file actually being used. Many systems have multiple XF86Config files. Normally they are located in:

/etc/X11

If you have a file named:

XF86Config-4

That is probably the one being used. If you don't have one with that exact name, it is most likely the file named:

XF86Config

You're going to have to figure out a way to get it off, unfortunately.

Could you put the file on a floppy? Do you have access to an FTP server or something similar, so that you could move it off using a console-based tool? Unfortunately, I doubt we can help much without seeing the configuration file.

Format the floppy first in Windows.

Then copy on over.
