Yes, remove any /etc/X11/XF86Config files.
No, don't copy or move any existing xorg.conf files into /etc/X11.
Use system-config-display to create a new, fresh config file instead
(this is more likely to create a usable file than assuming one you
*find* on the system is valid.. the s-c-d program uses a script that
knows what is valid to create it)
