Fix bug #379391 - Update xorg-config to include firmware information on latest radeon stuff. Thanks to email@example.com for reporting/content
update Xorg guide for the HAL removal. this took many hours, spread out over many weeks. there may still be a few things to add, but this will do as a working basic installation/walkthrough. bug 349698.
additional env-update reminder after editing 90xsession, bug 351370

fix commandline order, bug 321223
Fix estonian layout bzcat command, bug 321093
added the -retro option per bug 267769. also added a bit on installing twm and xterm only for testing purposes, since otherwise startx will just display a black screen. having a few open xterm windows makes it easier to verify that X is setup correctly.
Latest stable xinit (1.2 and up) no longer install TWM, xterm, or xclock, so don't mention assume they're present
Add information about (re)starting hald, per an email from Janne Mäntylä
more fixes from bug 297245
typo fix, bug 297245
The big Xorg HOWOTO rewrite. This should take into account all the xserver 1.5 and 1.6 changes. I emphasized HAL/evdev for device management and configuration. xorg.conf is really only used as a last resort for things like display resolution. bug 267769.
The first of many rewrites I'll be making to the guide to bring it up to stable xserver 1.6 standards. bug 229769
recommend xorg-server, not xorg-x11, as the more recent versions that will be stabilized bring in a spamload of international alphabets and fonts. totally useless for a working desktop.
add the xorg-server 1.5 migration guide to metadoc, in the desktop_install and upgrade categories. bug 265116. also added it to the 'additional resources' section of the xorg install guide, for good measure.
A little handholding for pebkac users; removed a paragraph just to be sure. bug 254186
Update the xorg guide. clean up video_cards and input_devices information at the beginning. remove references to X11R6. add online help links. some general cleanup toward the end of the doc.
a few more non-content changes i missed. there are FAR too many smileys in this doc. i blame swift\!
buncha small coding style fixes and punctuation, spelling, and grammar fixes. no content change.
updated xorg guide for bug 182752
clarify status of the radeon driver
added bit about /dev/input/mice to the xorg guide, bug 167337
