Being logged-on as root, run
Code:

init 4

This will change the computer's runlevel from 3 to 4 on the fly. And then see whether the graphical login manager starts. If that goes OK, you can edit your inittab file and reboot the PC.

You are most probably not running xorgconfig as root then. Thats why xorg.conf was saved in your home folder.
Run xorgconfig as root. Then as root manually edit the xorg.conf file.
