I am having trouble with 8.04 live CD and a dell inspiron 1100, and 
looking at the xorg.conf for 8.04 shows that it is a pale shadow of 
its previous self.....

A later version of xorg is being used which is apparently better at 
auto configuring. However, it looks to me that less happens in 
xorg.conf itself (?)

Unfortunately I do not know enough to trouble shoot the new system
