This is an old (in relative terms) install. The oldest I have on hand is an Mdk7.2, which have the following "aides":
Xconfigurator
xf86config
xf86cfg
In your case I'd use Xconfigurator (if you have it).

<Philosophy> There are no Linux commands:-). Linux is basically an OS kernel, the commands are mainly FSF GNU stuff.</Philosophy>

Well... At least one of the suggested tools is always there (xf86config), so a refund should be out of the question.
