I use switchconf to change more files, like the sources.list,
XF86Config-4, gpm.conf.  The last two are choosen by looking into PCI
bus to detect what is the hardware the system is running.  

For example, if the vga display is a Matrox, I know the machine have a
wheel PS/2 mouse and the monitor is capable of 1024x768@75Hz.  If the
display is a NVIDIA I know the mouse is a wheel USB and the display is
a LCD capable of 1280x1024@75Hz.  So the switchconf change the
XF86Config and the gpm.conf to match the hardware.
