switching video cards nVidia to ATI


Right now i have a nVidia 6600GT installed and it works great. I am building a new mythTV box and want to put this card in it. (i need the component out) I have a older ATI 9200 that I would like to through in. So, how do i do this.

I imaging I first need to get ahold of a fresh xorg.conf file. using the vesa driver.
then remove the nvidia drivers.
then, cp xorg.conf_vesa xorg.conf
install card.
then install ati drivers via yum.

Is this correct? Where can a get a plain xorg.conf file. Mine is highly modified for Component out.
