Why didn't redhat answear this obvious bug !! what is Bugzilla for if redhat 
doesn't use it !! or update it ?

After searching in google, the solution is the config file for XFree 4.xx is 
XF86Config-4 and not XF86Config, redhat needs really to make those kind of 
changes obvious !!

Thank you for the bug report. Red Hat have to deal with zillions bug
reports, they have limited time and people resources, so some of bugs
are lost in bug reports flood, of course that dosen't excuse them, but
please be patient while waiting for bug resolve.

BTW in Fedora Core 2 and 3 there is only one config file xorg.conf and
setting keyboard to "fr" should always work :)
