Q re /usr/share/hwdata files

Uptodate F8 system here, on 32 bit x86 hardware. Using a visiontek 2400HD
card, 700 mhz overclocked version.
I note, in mucking around in the yumex database, that there is no
radeonhd.xinf file in xorg-x11-drv-ati or in xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd.
Would it be to the users advantage to generate this file, and if so, how do I
do it in a more universally usable format than just duping the info from this
card into a file so named?
I'm attempting to see if I can figure out how to restore my tty1 console when
I exit x. As it is, the video totally stops and the monitor shuts down when
I exit x now. No consoles are available of the 6 default ones. The only
action I tried so far is to blindly type reboot, or the vulcan nerve pinch on
ctl-alt-del. It may be possible to re-'startx', and I will try that the next
time I reboot.
Also, is it safe to run /usr/bin/rhd_conntest when x is running?
