You know, I begin to think a very brief run-down of the different
X configuration tools is worth adding to the FAQ. X certainly seems
to rival modem hassles and pppd for problems. :) Or add a pointer
to the XFree86 HOWTOs (XFree86-HOWTO, XFree86-Video-Timings-HOWTO
and XWindow-User-HOWTO are all in my /usr/doc/HOWTO directory on
my RH system). The XFree86-HOWTO, though, really only mentions one
or two tools. I'm sure I've seen discussions of people's preferred
configuration tools about. Slashdot (Ask Slashdot) and linux.com
(the polls section) spring to mind. I would bet there's a FAQ or
five from Usenet, too, but I don't know where offhand.

Just one saying, "Tool A: found in distributions X, Y and Z. It
looks like this, expects you to provide the information about 
blah and blah, and its documentation is at <site>" for a couple might
be enough.

Or does something like this exist already? It's the sort of thing
which I'm sure some magazine or series of articles must have
covered at some stage.
