Debian XFree86 Config probs

When configuring XFree86 on a debian installation i constantly run into the problem of it finding a screen but none have a useable configuration, yet i copy over the config details from a Redhat install that works and it still has the same problem

it's not just debian but any dist of linux that doesn't use anaconda install.

any insights?

Why not try a new configuration of XF86Config generated by Debian, then make changes which you want to make?
