At one point, the Metro-X server had better initial configuration tools than XFree86's configuration.  Since then, XFree86 has caught up, and I'm not sure why RedHat still bundles Metro-X with their product.  

The XFree86 community seems pretty active, and if your distribution doesn't include what you want, you should check the web sites for the latest releases.
