find the bit that says Driver "nvidia" (assuming you have an nvidia card) and replace the "nvidia" with "vesa".

If you have an ati card it will probably say "fglrx".

it will look something like

Section "Device"
#Identifier "Nvidia Graphics card"
#Driver "nvidia" <--change this bit
#something else
EndSection


edit: then save and restart X by pressing ctrl+alt+backspace
