stupid question

and yes, there are stupid questions, but there are those of use who
prefer to ask than to remain in a stupid state for a more prolonged
period :)

How do you unload X from memory long enough to edit the XF86Config file
manually so that I can change the resolution. It says in vi that it is
read-only when I am root (I expect that is because X is running and
using it...)

I have done the ctrl-alt-backspace thing, but it keeps rerunning it

any help is appreciated.
