Once again thanks that did the trick.
I feel like an idiot, because once I read this, I remembered I had set those
values in an old config once upon a time...
For the record I used:
HorizSync 31 - 81
VertRefresh 58 - 76
I can even get 1600x1200.
As for 24 bpp, that doesn't quite work. I get thin wiggly horiz. lines on the
right hand side of the screen. I'm not too concerned about it though. Now I
can go download some fonts, get KDE going and start using the machine. :-)
