Monitor definitions

A thousand apologies if this is the wrong place for such a post.  Maybe this
should go directly to my OS vendor as a request.  If so, I'd appreciate a
relevant pointer.  I'm running,

1012 monolith:~$ rpm -qa|grep server-X

1015 monolith:~$ uname -a
Linux monolith 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5smp #1 SMP Wed Apr 19 05:31:55 EDT 2006 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Noticed that there is currently no monitor definition for the Samsung
SyncMaster 214T.  There is a 213T which I used for starters, but the
modelines aren't exactly right which causes muddiness and bleeding.  After a
bit of xvidtune, this seems to work perfectly:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor1"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
#        ModelName    "Samsung SyncMaster 213T/CX210T"
        ModelName    "Samsung SyncMaster 214T"
#       HorizSync    30.0 - 81.0
#       VertRefresh  56.0 - 85.0
        HorizSync    45.0 - 75.5
        VertRefresh  56.0 - 62.0
        Option      "dpms"

The 213T's "30.0 - 81.0" HorizSync values look horrible, but dialing things
in a bit more results in a crisp display.  My hopes is to get the 214T model
officially included.
