I also had X-server problems after upgrading to Edgy. A complete fresh
install of edgy from DVD helped tacle all issues.

There is not mechanism to downgrade from edgy to dapper, at least I am
not aware of any. Therefor, I would suggest to install dapper in a new
clean partition and then copy the required data from edgy partition to
new dapper installation.

Good luck,
