You should use either /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86Setup or /usr/X11R6/bin/xf86config . The first one is the graphical setup. The other text.

i've never been able to configure X perfectly using any of the tools. basically, i just use the default file and add my own settings (vid card drivers, screen depth, input cores). the most important thing is to figure out what vid card you have and find out which driver you should use with your card.

whenever i used any of the tools they wouldn't detect my card properly, and X would be REAL slow.

good luck. :-)
