It's supposed that Fedora does not need xorg.conf anymore (except for
expert configuration). Xserver 1.6 have dynamic configuration ability,
without any tool, even after a problem you can always remove/rename the
xorg.conf and reboot to get a "default display configuration".

To troubleshoot problems on X you will need to see the logs (as we have done) or you can also use xrandr to configure resolution/dualhead.

I believe that, until now, nobody knows. :-)
