Yup.  Redhat renamed a bunch of configuration utilities, probably in 
an effort to standardize things a bit.  Have a look at all the files 
starting with redhat-config-* in /usr/bin and /usr/sbin.  You're 
specifically looking for /usr/bin/redhat-config-xfree86.

It's called kudzu.  "kudzu --usage" will likely tell you what you 
want to know.
