Inspiron 1100 troubles

Editing with vi worked like a charm, and I was able to fix everything
except the XF86Config issue. I changed the driver material to "vesa,"
but the problem is still there. Suggestions?

Its harmless, for some reason the initscripts seem to want to start up
toshipa_acpi on all the laptops here

Another harmless initscript problem, they are not needed on 2.6

You can fix this by adding
install floppy /bin/true

You can fix this by changing the line about hda in /etc/smartd.conf to
the DVD drive doesn't support smart is all. Dell has the DVD on IDE0
HDD on IDE1 for some bizarre reason.

You need to edit /etc/X11/XF86Config
Scroll down to section "Device", somewhere in there will be a line
Driver. Change what is after the Driver part to read "vesa". Then see
running startx from a console will do any better.
