	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.
