[ltp] XF86Config silly question

I tried to run the xf86config command to configure X11 on my ThinkPad
385XD using the Caldera OpenLinux CDRom which came with the SAMS book
this evening, and made a frightful mess of it - the KDE desktop looked
awful.  Fortunately I was eventually able to copy the backup copy if
XF86Config back over the new XF86Config file, and things now seem to be
the way they were.

Silly question I know, but why would I need to run the xf86config
command anyway?  Why not leave the XF86Config file the way it was after
installation?  The KDE desktop looks fine, and I can call the programs
and utilities.  Why mess with it?
