Updating Can't-Access-Console With Important Information:

I did not follow your instructions correctly on the VESA suggestion.

I used start-up option #6 (Run X in VESA mode) and not #7 (Run the Display
Setup Wizard).

When I did run #7 (Display Setup Wizard) and ran the installation, first for
VESA and then for nv, both @ 1024 x 768, I can go to console.

My usual driver is nVidia 185.18.29 running at a resolution of 1600 x 1200
displayed on a Nokia Multigraph 445Xpro CRT, and here is the xorg.conf file:
