On my boxes (don't use KDE or Gnome, so don't know if it's a factor) I
have had XF86Config, not Config-4.  Xorg simply uses that config file,
though I should copy it over to xorgconfig or whatever it's called. (I
should probably not copy it till I know.)  :)

Since posting last night, I thought to myself, ok, let's do this one
last box, and have been running into problems.  :)  Still, 5 out of 6
went without difficulty.  I'm afraid I don't know the status of GL
