I still don't know why I can't edit the xorg.conf file while running Sabayon's liveDVD from within the text interface. I also don't understand why it switches to a text interface because the display is just fine up to a point.
Another problem I am now having is that I got a kernel panic when trying to boot into Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS last night and now my display is pink. No changes were made to the monitor's settings before that point. I have also gone back & deleted all my partitions, re-created them and then formatted them to ext2 and the screen is still pink. Monkeying with the primitive color controls on the monitor has not helped, either. The best I can do is to make it pinkish-blue or magenta. So, that particular problem actually has me more ticked off than the other problems I am having getting everything up and running (mainly because I actually don't mind re-installing the various distros as many times as required to get it where I want it).
Any thoughts on my pink screen? And what is nano?
