    Before beginning the driver installation, you should exit the X server.
    In addition you should set your default run level so you will boot to a
    vga console and not boot directly into X (please consult the documentation
    that came with your Linux distribution if you are unsure how to do this;
    this is normally done by modifying your /etc/inittab file). This will
    make it easier to recover if there is a problem during the installation.
    After installing the driver you must edit your X config file before
    the newly installed driver will be used. See the section below entitled
    EDITING YOUR X CONFIG FILE.
