I never got my monitor working right with resolution > 640x480 under
Windows 3.11 since my monitor was not on the driver's list. But
I got 1152x900 with 16 bit color under XFree86. So much for Windows.
What we need os a Web server which can take monitor setting/video card
inputs and creat a XF86Config database. It should also mail me back a
recommended XF86Config after I type in my setup.
