[ale] New Distros, X11 Blues

Christopher and Jeff -

Thanks for the details. Those should get me back in motion.

Christopher explained his Ubuntu recommendation:

> The reason I say this is because there were changes in X video detection
> between
> 7.10 and 8.04.
> If 7.10 works then simply copy /etc/X11/xorg.conf and then blow it all
> away with 8.10.
> when 8.10 is done copy the xorg.conf back and you should be in great shape!
> 7.10 is "old" but it will only be on there for 30 minutes.

Jeff's comment (on fixing F10):

> You can run "yum install system-config-display" then run the
> "system-config-display" to set specific information and create the
> xorg.conf.   That worked fine for a machine we have here yesterday.
