sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

will ask you all the keyboard questions and (i think) a few about your 
monitor. It's got substantially simpler since X started relying more on 
HAL and less on xorg.conf.

In case you do manage to get it more wrong than it is now, it backs up 
your xorg.conf for you.
