Actually, he should use Xconfigurator since if he uses XF86Setup, X won't
start, unless he hand edit the XF86Config file to add in the "FontPath
that is used to have access to the x font server. So, don't give advice
to people unless you know about the distribution that they are using and
their skill level.
Also, RedHat provides lots of documentation on how to use their
distribution, but most people just sem to like to avoid reading it...
then ask for help, go figure.
