What's Redhat's equivalent of SuSE's SaX?


Friends,
I recently changed my monitor and that caused X windows not to dispaly. I have both Redhat and SuSE running on the same machine. Using SuSE's SaX, I was able to configure the X corrently and get it to work. However, I haven't been able to find out a similar utility on Redhat. The usual xf86config don't work.
Is anyone aware how I can configure X Server from command prompt on Redhat using RH equivalent of SaX. (I am not looking for x configurators).

xf86config should defienitly be on your system.

and you don't wnat x configurators?? but 'Xconfigurator' IS the best, easiest way to completely configure an X server... much nicer than xf86config, and does the same thing
