Re: [vox-tech] Flat Panel and Linux


This doesn't make any sense, especially with my setup.  How could I already have
an instance of an X window running?  I reboot all the time (switching disks,

Point 1.  Wouldn't it use my newly edited XFree86config file when I start X, or
are you saying I have to do something special on the command line to tell it to
use that file (i.e. like editing lilo.conf and then having to #lilo)

Point 2.  I haven't tried this, I'm starting a new contract on Mon (I'm an
Oracle DBA) and I have to learn how to use Oracle's new backup and recovery
