When logged in as root, you have access to *everything*, it
doesn't matter what. You *should* be able to modify or copy that
file. Are you refering to /etc/X11/XF86Config? The lettercase
matters; 'xf86config' is an executable program. Are you aware of
the absense of the current directory being in root's path?
Meaning, if you are issuing the commands from /etc/X11/, you'll
have to refer to XF86Config as ./XF86Config.
Try showing the error messages that you are getting, so those on
this list have more to go on.
