the xorg.conf is used if it exists, and what's in it is used to
overwrite what is detected automatically.

Example, if you want to install nvidia driver, then you have to list the
nvidia driver in the config.  Same as if you have a different type
monitor setup, or mode lines or whatever, just add the parts you want to
change in the .conf file and that should work.  I beleive the system is
setup to look for an xorg.conf file first, use what is in it, then auto
detect everything else.

And to generate the conf file in the first place, would you say the best way to start would be to 'X -configure'  and tweak from there?
