If you don t have an existing /etc/X11/XF86Config* file it does probe the

The tool is still unable to do most choice though works is on the way :
- lots of fix are expected for 4.3.0-dfsg.1.9
- ubuntu (fully automated for one card install ) does it pretty well
through hacks sometimes. We can expect some improvments will be included
 in debian. 

At first you could try renaming your old X config, taking care that most
 package suggested by xserver-xfree86 are installed: 
- mdetect for mouse
- read-edid for monitor frequency autodetection
- discover for video card detection

It did autodetected my stuff after i did an X purge (i was going from
 unoffical packages back to the debian ones). Though i expect moving
 the config will be enough.
