You do need the PCI Bus number. As the message says when you are
configuring, you can figure it out by looking at the output of lspci,
but you have to convert the hex to decimal, e.g. if lspci says your
display is 00:10.0, use PCI:00:16:00 . If you don't understand, post
your lspci output and someone will help.

To get back to the configuration step, you can use 

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

(or you can just type the BusID into the config file).
