system-config-display was depracted since the native detection works for most combinations, but not all :(, I have been also at this end, but youc an fix it as following: 

You have two options

1) as root user (su -c )
# yum install system-config-display
and use 
$ system-config-display
to setup/configure your system 

2) use 
# Xorg -configure 

You should see something like 

Your xorg.conf file is /root/xorg.conf.new

To test the server, run 'X -config  /root/xorg.conf.new'
 
test it using that and if it works, you as root user (su -) copy the file over to /etc/X11

# cp xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf 

Then change as root user
# /etc/inittab 

from 3 to 5 so that the system starts in level 5 with gui :)

Antonio
