Description of problem:
Actually this is in regards to the current Redhat Linux Beta version. There is 
no Xconfigurator or similar program and therefore it is very difficult to

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Type Xf86config

Actual Results:  The system says there is no such program

Expected Results:  I should have been able to configure my graphics card 
easily while the Xserver was not (and could not) run.
