    Identifier "Monitor0"
    VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
    ModelName "SyncMaster"
    DisplaySize 310 230
    HorizSync 30.0 - 71.0
    VertRefresh 75.0 - 75.0
    Option "dpms"
    EndSection

    You should (in a console, and as root) type "telinit 3" [Tell init to go to level 3]. This will stop the current X server and allow you to run "XFree86 -configure".
    BTW you might want to exit your X applications including xterms first: telinit 3 will kill them without warning you further, such is the power of the command line.
    Afterwards in /root there will be a new file called XF86config.new which you can copy to /etc/X11/XFree86config-4 or whatever.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
