Xserver-XFree86 Configuration

Even after I had the base system installed and happy, I couldn't get X working as easily as I had in the past (which was basically it coming up upon rebooting after the base installation). I must have configured something wrong, because instead of starting X as usual, the screen flashed a couple times, and then kicked me back to a console.

The way to reconfigure the X-server is by using dpkg (what else?). Do:

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

to reconfigure X. It's best just to change one parameter at a time, so you can see what's working and what's not.
