Kevin is right. But you have to first stop the server by running
"/sbin/telinit 3" (as root). Then login as root and run "X
-configure". It will generate a configuration file (which should be
the same as the auto-detected settings). This gets saved to something
like /root/xorg.conf.new. Do "cp /root/xorg.conf.new
/etc/X11/xorg.conf", then "/sbin/telinit 5" and you should be up and
running.
