New xorg.conf & old XF86config

In the change over from the old to the new packages, I now have the Xorg executable running, and the XFree86 executable is gone from my machine, but the configuration data is still in /etc/X11/XF86Config. There is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

So I would like to clean this up and rename the file XF86Config to xorg.conf and then tell Xorg to use the new file.

Where is the "pointer" or instructions to tell Xorg what the name/location of the configuration file is?

I think if you use the graphical resolution tool it will create a xorg.conf and then just cut and paste the relevant stuff from the XF86config over... I tried renaming it but it didn't seem to work but your mileage may vary...
