you typed it wrongly, it is *radeon*, take a look at:

# cd /tmp

# wget http://theapt.org/openbsd/xorg.conf

# cp /tmp/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Just to be clear, it is a possibility, I didn't test it!

if you stick the pendrive and then

# dmesg | tail

you will see the "name" the system gave your pendrive's partition,
usually /dev/sdb1.

to gain access to that partition you have to do something like:

# mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/pendrive (this directory must be
created with # mkdir /mnt/pendrive)
