RE: [SLUG] Re: XFree86 Version 4.0.3 / X Windows System

There is also a detailed section on 'Editing Your XF86CONFIG file' in the
"NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver README & Installation Guide" (last updated
May 14, 2001) at www.nvidia.com

I'm reading through it before firing up vi to have a look at
/etc/X11/XF86Config ...

To complete the story: XF86Config-4 is the preferred config file for XFree
4, not X windows 4.  XFree 4 will try to use the XF86Config file if it does
not find an XF86Config-4 file in /etc/X11.  There are also a bunch of other
places it tries, see XF86Config(5) on an XFree 4 system to find out more.
