I have upgraded to sid and I have the nvidia modules installed now by "m-a 
auto-install nvidia" and they work as expected but because I have manually 
edited xorg.conf "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" won't save the files anymore 
because they have been modified.

Is there some way I can get back into a state where I can run that command and 
save those files? I want to run that to get the question about best 
resolution etc. Now that I have the nvidia.ko working the look of the desktop 
needs some adjusting.
