Generic X11 config?

Hello everyone!

I'm generally not the type of person to ask alot of questions, since I
prefer to dig for the
answers myself. (I learn best this way) However, I've reached that point :)

I am relatively new to Linux. I have been extremely impressed at the
progress made
over the past few years, and as of a few months ago have decided that
Linux is the future!

I'm running OpenSuSE now as my primary desktop.
I have successfully built an LFS system (SVN-20060330),
and have added the KDE desktop using the current SVN BLFS book.
I have created a LiveCD from this, using the lfslivecd-x86-6.2-pre3 CD
as my reference.

The CD works fine on my PC, however I need it to work on "any" PC.
Right now, my biggest problem area seems to be the X11 config.
I have so many questions at this point I don't know where to start :)

I am very interested in becoming more proficient with Linux, and the
LFS/BLFS projects
have been exactly what I needed! But, I still have so much to learn.

So... any information, reference docs I might have missed, etc....
would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I could not find any "searchable" archive of this list, which
I'm sure would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Just for some background, my life with computers began in pre-Windows
DOS, then on to an MCP in Win95 and Win2K, CNA in Netware 5,
Visual Basic 5/6 hobbiest, then web development using MivaScript.
Examples of my MivaScript work can be found at
Along with a related VB project (abandoned at this point) at
