What happens is that the reconfigure will run, and then it will just stop abnormally. It is like the program is done, but it is not because I never get to set my screen or video card etc. This leaves my xorg.conf looking like this:

# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier    "Generic Keyboard"
    Driver        "kbd"
    Option        "XkbRules"    "xorg"
    Option        "XkbModel"    "pc104"
    Option        "XkbLayout"    "us"

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier    "Configured Mouse"
    Driver        "mouse"

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Configured Video Device"

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier    "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor        "Configured Monitor"

 Which is obviously incomplete.

I believe I'd try the -phigh option (see line above). If that doesn't work, I'd just start over with a new file by moving this one out of the way, and then running "X -configure" which will create a new xorg.conf file in your home directory (or in the directory you're currently in, I forget which). The output will tell you how to test it, or just go ahead and move it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and then "startx" or "/etc/init.d/[x|k|w|g]dm restart" to test it.
