FC2 uses the X.org server instead, the file you need is /etc/X11/xorg.conf. The Nvidia readme file mentions the possible (probable with any newer distro release) alternate config file, and the release notes for FC2 make note of the change.

I guess it should be in /etc/X11

Maybe you can try "updatedb" first before you do "locate XF86Config", this will update the database before you query it.

Maybe you don't have the XFree-server but is Fedora Core 2 using X.org? If you have the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf, you will have X.org. X.org is another version of the X-server, simply put. You can edit the file xorg.conf just like you would XF86Config, the format and options are the same.
