14 The horysontal sync and vertival refresh rates aren't likely
15 to be the same, so you'll have to adapt your current xorg.conf
16 I've read a few times that wrong values can harm your screen
17 (but never seen it happen) so be careful.
19 Or you can use 'xorgconfig' and answer the questions step by step.
20 I did this on a 17'' dell TFT at work and it worked first try.
22 Good luck
