How do I get to see the XF86 file? What do I have to type on the console
without having installed Linux yet, but on the XF86Config display

Hmmm, I am not sure exactly what you are asking here (no puedo hablarQuote:>How do I get to see the XF86 file? What do I have to type on the console

The XF86Config file is located (on RedHat-type system) in /etc/X11. You
probably don't want to edit this file by hand--jusr run Xconfigurator to
set up X for your display.
X also comes with a script (that is more clunky to use than Xconfigurator)
call xf86config that may work if Xconfigurator fails.

When an X server runs, it picks out the particular "Screen" section in
XF86Config applicable to it. In that section it finds some "Display"
subsections. In each subsection it finds some Mode references.
The XF86Config man page tells how the choice of modes within a
subsection is made, but not the choice of subsection. If there are
multiple Display subsections, what determines which one gets used in
the first place?
