This has been done a lot of times, for different monitors.
What video card do you have?
All S3-based cards support setting almost arbitrary timing, I don't know
You need to know the hirizontal and vertical frequency of your monitor
and calculate an XFree modeline for this monitor.
I read that this modeline can used by a package called SVGATextmode for
setting up console mode too.
(Maybe somebody can provide you with a mode line.)
If the hitatchi needs seperate sync signals, you are fine, but if it needs
sync-on-green (or comnposite sync) and your video does not support it,
search archie on "+sync +green" and find the Sync-on-Green faq with many
hints for many different monitors.
(or mail me)
