Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
Option "RENDER" "Enable"
EndSection

to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

ive restarted my FC4

get a terminal line--however ya can. (even with the boot disk and chroot/mount the disk)
delete the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
rename the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
that's if ya used the display manager setup
otherwise it may be called xorg.conf.bak or xorg.conf~ or something along those lines--unless you haven't been making a backup.

put in the #1 install disk
at the "install" type screen
enter this
linux rescue
and READ and follow instructions you see on each screen--write them down if necessary.
