    Just put a script in /etc/rc.d/init.d and link to it
from /etc/rc.d/rc5.d (call the script WHATEVER and the link
S99WHATEVER).  If you're really ambitious you could steal one of the
preexisting scripts and change the chkconfig part to set the S99 then
you could just do chkconfig WHATEVER on.  The script should copy the
correct xorg.conf file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.  The easiest way would be
to name the files /etc/X11/xorg.conf_2.6.14-0.10.rrt.rhfc4.ccrma
and /etc/X11/xorg.conf_2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 (or whatever) then you could
just copy /etc/X11/xorg.conf_`uname -r` to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.  This way
you can boot right into level 5 with no problems (hopefully).
