I'm glad to see people referring to the common bugs page - yay :)

However, I have to admit that's one of my more hand-wavey moments (I
wrote that bit) - I was in a hurry and didn't check whether a)
system-config-display is actually installed by default (it may not be,
and thanks to NetworkManager, if you can't get into X, you may well not
have a network connection in order to install it...) and b) whether it
runs in console mode.

I should probably investigate and come up with a more comprehensive,
hand-holdy note.

I believe running Xorg -configure as root from *outside* of X will
create a /root/xorg.conf.new file which you can move
to /etc/X11/xorg.conf , as an alternative method.
