Unhappy My Xserver is not staring

Hi friends, I got a problem in starting the graphical interface. I unexpectedly configured the graphical interface for two monitors but I have only one. I jost tried to see what happens if we configure like that.But it actually stopped all of my work.It is saying that "I cannot start the X server and start it after configuring properly". I am using Fedora Core 2.How can I change the configuration so that I will get the graphical interface again.I went to /etc/X11/xorg.conf file but I dont know how to configure it to get the graphical interface again.Please help me as early as possible.

Take a look at the X-Server Log File which is located at


or similar. (If you have XFree86 the Log may be called Xfree86.0.log)
Watch out for lines starting with 'EE' and post them here. (But please do not post the whole log)

Post your ServerLayout, Graphic-Adapter and MonitorSections from /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
