Actually a few version back xorg became super auto config, where the
rule became basically = do not touch by hand. If you want hand massaged
stuff you put it in a different file and get it pulled in.

This page shows how to deal with the new layout.
It's almost identical to udev, and modrprobe stuff - where you put files
with config stuff in the directory and assign a priority with a number
at the start of the file name.

As for the S-video part, what brand of card and which driver are you using?
