I did this a while back by just following the instructions that come with the xfree distribution. I think you just remove or rename the /usr/XFree86 directory and unpack the new files there. Look at www.XFree86.org for mirrors that have the distribution, and download the readme files for instructions on what files are required/optional, and what else might be needed to set it up.

I´ve just installed the Xfree 3.3.2 you must look in www.XFree86.org and they have a RELNOTES file with the graphics
 card supported and the files required for its instalation.
You will have to unload several files:
  preinst.sh
  postinst.sh
  extract
  several X332* files. They will depend of you graphic card.
I suggest you to read the help files before the instalation. Perhaps you graphic card doesnt
 be supported in this release either.

good look.

Freex3.3.2 dosen't support neomagic video adaptors. There is a binary X server available somewhere. Try looking on the redhat home under suport / compatability listing / intel hardware / XBF X servers.

I think you will find what you are looking for there.

Cheers...
