i just replaced the distributor cap and rotor as well in my saab, i was told that was the reason it was stalling out everytime i drove it.. car will not turn over and it turns but even cuts out while trying to start it.. what do you think is the issue? How can i solve this problem? :x

Has it started since you changed the cap and rotor? When you say it doesn't turn over - do you mean it doesn't start, fire up and run? Or do you mean the engine literally will not turn over when you trun the key to the start position?

"car will not turn over" what kind of treats are you offering it? Did you disconnect the ground wire to the distributor body? And I agree with double checking the firing order. When was the last time you checked the gap on the plugs or changed them? I pulled a set of autolites out of one of my cars and they were gapped to .060 (should be .024-.028).
