Xorg looks in several locations, but /etc/X11 is the older setup. New
is /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xorg.conf. If you are still using XFree86 instead
of Xorg, your XF86Config file should be in the same directory.

That's odd. Xorg is pretty good about autoconfiguring, but I didn't
think it would run without any xorg.conf at all. If you don't have the
file, it can be created:
That creates xorg.conf.new in your current directory. Edit as required
and move to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xorg.conf.
