Subsequent to this I noticed that the newly created xorg.conf is using
the vesa driver not the nvidia driver. I thought this may be the
problem so I changed it to nvidia, but then X won't start and
complains that it can't open the nvidia module. I'm totally confused
now - how come it can't use the nvidia driver?
