Was it necessary to file the same bug report 4 times in a row?
Run "redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig" as root, and once it completes, try
to start the X server. If it fails, attach your X config file and log file.
Are you using one head, or 2, and what is attached to each of them.
Also, it is "Red Hat Linux 9", there's intentionally no ".0"
Hmm sorry I must have done something wrong there that it got filed so many
times. I'll go run redhat-config.

here is my XF86Config file
Here's my XF86Config file, I think this is the config file you wanted but how
and where do I find the log file? I'm sorry I'm very new to Linux, if you can
provide me with a path and file name I'll upload it. Thanks!
