I'm not too sure what you mean by that but I take it to mean that
you've installed X but havent configured it yet. The handbook explains
what to do:

Just follow what they do in the handbook in the link above.

No. xorg.conf is a file which lives in /etc/X11/xorg.conf but you have
to put it there once you've created it with:
# Xorg -configure
and tested it with:
# Xorg -config xorg.conf.new
It might need some tweaking (editing) e.g French keyboard instead of
English. Then do:
# cp ./xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
and try starting X:
If those commands aren't found, then you either need to rehash your
or you haven't installed X properly. How did you install X?

Sorry. I don't know what you mean.
