I am going to change my video card to another brand on a working Debian 3.0

Something like this?
1. backup stuff
2. disable kdm
2. power down and change video card
3. power up
4. as root, run one of:
5. as user, run startx
What if this get hosed? I see why test based email clients are a good idea.
Should I plan on setting up a text email client prior to the change so I can
ask for help?
Boot into console mode, then just do XFree86 -configure as root,
and copy the new card info to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. None of this
should break the system.
