To all:

Installed f12 without any problems.

Discovered that crtl-alt-backspace was disabled in f12 and how I
could edit my xorg.conf to restore that feature.

How did you discover this? Trying it in a gnome desktop? :)

Searched Fedora f12 web pages and they told me to install
system-config-display to create an xorg.conf that matched the default
that the opSys was using. Worked great and, to use the cliché,
"groovy"

Don't do that. See:

(with screenshots even! :)

There is no need at all to make an xorg.conf, and as you have seen it
can cause problems moving forward.

If the OP is interested, the command line way to do this would be to have one of your login scripts like ~/.bash_profile say,

setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp
