    for the record, i never said anything about copy/paste, its just copying file

    Code:
    sudo Xorg -configure
    sudo mv /etc/X11/{xorg.conf,xorg.conf.orig}
    sudo mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11
    I new I was seeing it wrong. I can always count on you Coop to keep me on the straight and narrow !! I jumped to the assumption about copy/paste...sorry, my bad.
    I'll be at work until this evening, will do the tasking when I get home. I'll post the results, thank you again Coop !!

    As mentioned in the other thread, you might wanna reconsider your choice of 64bit.
    Especially as a beginner, it's probably better to use 32bit instead (as far as I know, the performance doesn't change very much either). Also check ved's post.

    Thanks Tyho,
    I'll check out Ved's post. I chose the 64-bit OS for maximum performance using high-end graphical, 3D modeling, and CADD programs that I'll be using. The 64-bit processing offers more agility when doing real-time 3D design work using a Quad-core CPU.
    If it were for just normal stuff then I'd have no problem with using 32-bit OS. Unfortunately that's not the case, I built this computer from the mobo on up just for using these engineering software bundles. It is my motivation behind trying to get the NVIDIA drivers on-line as opposed to just going with the 'vesa' drivers that come with the OS.
    A friend has offered me his WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64-bit backup disc with all the codes to activate it. The more I struggle with this Linux OS the more I want to take him up on his offer. What will probably happen is that I'll partition out the HHD and load the two OS's side-by-side.
    As a note of progress, well lack of progress actually.... the OS crashed again for no appearant reason the other day, and I have not had the time to re-format the HHD and start over.

    Since I'm interested in the 32bit-or-64bit discussion and I didn't really know much about it, I googled for a while and found three interesting articles:

    1. A more than 5 year old Tech Report article about 64bit, it's old but it tells interesting things about theoretical aspects:
    64-bit computing in theory and practice

    2. A post by techieMoe on linuxforums:
    Should you choose 32-bit or 64-bit Linux?

    3. An article by TuxRadar about benchmarks on a Ubuntu 9.04 System:
    Ubuntu 9.04: 32-bit vs 64-bit benchmarks

    Those are just some Google hits, but I think they are interesting and well-written articles about 64bit systems.
