I think this is definitely a distribution level problem, so this is not
the best place to get a decent answer. However I cannot direct you
further since I'm a bit confused about exactly which distro you use.
Perhaps RC2 is a type-o for Redhat's Fedora Core 2, in which case you
should try Yet another poster seems to have
recommended you use a Debian specific command.

I'm afraid few people will be much help without more information about
your problem. For sure X is crapping out because it can no longer safely
display to totally different monitor, but more is needed I suggest you
look in your distro's specific help sites.

ps. FC2's server conf file is located in /etc/X11/xorg.conf IIRC
