Description of problem:

in the new xorg packages the X config got moved to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
 however /etc/X11/XF86config is still being created on install.

i also had to hand edit my xorg.conf file to get anything other than
640x480 to work.  i'm using a nvidia tnt2.  had to uncomment horizsync
and vertrefresh and then comment displaysize in the "monitor" section.
 i noticed that everytime i change the display settings, this
commented section is always placed in the "monitor" section:  
### Uncomment if you don't want to default to DDC:
#  HorizSync  30.0 - 85.0
#  VertRefresh  48.0 - 120.0
i also went up to "serverlayout" section and removed what appeared to
be random 0's laying about.

According to the latest builds as of May 4:

* Fri Apr 30 2004 Brent Fox <bfox@redhat.com> 1.0.14-1

- do not write out extra XF86Config file during firstboot (bug #121729)

Of course I haven't tested this, but since this bug got moved to
system-config-display, it already been fixed.  So I'm closing it
saying current release? If I'm wrong someone can reopen it.
