Linux "Let's face it; some distributions have better controls for handling display issues than others. Two that do it right out of the box that come to mind include Fedora (Red Hat) and openSUSE (Novell). Each includes tools that minimize the need to do what I gleefully refer to as the 'Xorg dance'. Basically, these options mean you are going to be spending more time exploring what these distros have to offer, yet less time wondering why your resolution looks completely off. Unfortunately, even with the latest release of Ubuntu, we have yet to see this level of functionality."

Yast and Sax2 are damn good tools on SuSE/Novell and OpenSUSE linux boxes ( I think Yoper guys have utilized Yast in their earlier releases) so is XFdrake on all Mandrake/Mandriva based distros ( e.g. PCLinuxOS )

Open your terminal,login as root and type:
XFdrake
(it's case sensitive) and you'll get very good GUI interface for xorg.conf file tweaks.
XFdrake is just one module among other great GUI configuration tools found in excellent Mandrake Control Center.
