I am running Xubuntu from thumbdrive.
This works ok on all my computers (that will boot from TD).
As long as I do not install Restricted drivers.
I would prefer to be able to select between xorg configurations at boot to choose between generic Intel, Nvidia or ATI, depending on which computer I plug it into.
Is there a simple way to do this?

Solved, (sort of)

I set up switchconf, it lets me choose between multiple xorg.conf at grub.
I can choose a xorg.conf with or without Nvidia drivers.
I can choose a xorg.conf with or without ATI drivers.
But when I install the Nvidia drivers they delete the ATI drivers and vice versa.
A switchconf how to is at:
