Excellent. I'm glad you got it sorted out. I was sorry to point out about 
saving the original file but i do see people reverting to doing a complete 
reinstall sometimes for things as simple as that. I even keep backups of 
config files with names like XF86Config-4.CRT so I can fix things from the 
command line if I really screw up
