  I tryed editing my xorg.conf file to conform with the below link.

  But now when I try rebooting my system I get no GUI I get a message
about the X server not being able to start then it would like me to
resetup the xorg.conf.

  my new xorg.conf looks like this.


[root at mythtv matt]# cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

        Identifier     "single head configuration"

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the
name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent
# the X server to render fonts.

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with
#       Option  "Xleds"         "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#       Option  "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
#       Option  "XkbModel"      "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#       Option  "XkbModel"      "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#       Option  "XkbLayout"     "de"
# or:
#       Option  "XkbLayout"     "de"
#       Option  "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#       Option  "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
#       Option  "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:nocaps"
