A strategy I have found useful, if this helps, has been to fire up a Knoppix 
CD, let it autodetect and autoconfigure itself, and then save its /etc (and 
whatever else) to your hard drive.  Then, if you are having trouble 
configuring something (e.g. XF86Config|xorg.conf), you can borrow the Knoppix 

For example, I could never get the tools available on my previous SuSE 
installation to configure my rather ancient laser printer.  However Knoppix 
had no trouble doing so and I have been using the .ppd that Knoppix created 
ever since, including in my current Gentoo installation.
