system-config-display --reconfig doesn't work from linux rescue.

This whole problem came about because I changed the display setting from 
within KDE even though it had correctley identified the monitor and gave me 
a list of valid resolutions.

In the future is anyone changes the display resolution it would be best if I 
had a default caonfig file I could restore.

When you update the display resolution, what file gets updated on disk?.
