Oh, I wish...  That's always a good way to start, but don't be surprised if
it doesn't help.

I just upgraded my kernel to 2.6.26 (from intrepid) because my HP laptop has
_always_ failed to properly boot 2.6.24 kernels, and everything worked
nicely except the xorg.conf settings.  As usual, I had to manually rework
my xorg.conf, as the result of "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" was
even worse than I had before reconfiguring.
