the configs for X11 are in /etc/X11/ - so it is for the XF86Config, too

dpkg -l "<packagename>" will show the version
newer XFree-packages can be found at ftp.de.debian.org - i suppose you´ve
hamm (debian 2.0) installed - so you´ll find a newer in /debian/dists/slink
(frozen) but be careful some packages are possibly broken (because of frozen
- pre release - stadium of slink (debian 2.1))

try "mkboot" - it creates a new boot-disk based on the actual kernel
