Simply edit the torrc while both Tor and Vidalia are closed. Vidalia edits the torrc file when changes are made using its interface; upon starting up, however, I believe it gathers its parameters directly from the torrc. In my experience when I write a custom torrc with Tor and Vidalia closed, and then start Vidalia (which in turns starts Tor), my custom torrc is overwritten, but upon careful observation of the new file, it can be seen that each of my settings remains the same, although reordered and with added header comments.

I do wish there was a "do not edit torrc" or "confirm before editing torrc" option in Vidalia, but generally the changes it makes are harmless. C'est la vie.

i am using Vidalia Bundle

and i found in my torcc file this :

This file was generated by Tor; if you edit it, comments will not be preserved
# The old torrc file was renamed to torrc.orig.1 or similar, and Tor will ignore it

# If set, Tor will accept connections from the same machine (localhost only)
# on this port, and allow those connections to control the Tor process using
# the Tor Control Protocol (described in control-spec.txt).
ControlPort 9051
# Where to send logging messages. Format is minSeverity[-maxSeverity]
# (stderr|stdout|syslog|file FILENAME).
Log notice stdout
# Bind to this address to listen to connections from SOCKS-speaking
# applications.

so how i can control and  fix or define my exitnode????
