I actually copied over the backup from /var/backups/blah/blah that the 
'nvidia-glx enable' created and got everything back the way it was.
BUT when I changed the driver part of my xorg.conf from 'nv' to 'nvidia' 
(and restarted X) I was put back into a 600x800 resolution again.
Back to 'nv' again and all is well :-(
How do I get 1024x768 using the nvidia driver?
