have you checked comp.os.linux.x?  i have posted a couple of messages regarding this problem.  the bottom line:

1) get the trident xserver from the XSuSE group          

   the right severs will solve a lot of problems.  they also have
   updated configuration programs.  if your card isn't listed then try

2) hand-craft your XF86Config.  you'll need to consult your monitor's
   manual and the linux video-timings mini-howto.

   if you have a jaton card: hunt thru their site (
   for the proper hync frequencies for your video timings.
