check /etc/X11/XF86Config ... that's where the config for XFree is.

To change it, you can either re-run one of the XFree cofiguration
programs, or manually edit that file.  xf86config is one such program.
You can also run "X -xf86config <filename>" to have XFree automagically
create a config file based on what it probes, but if it's incorrectly
detecting your hardware, that could be the problem you're having now.
