Can't switch resolutions with <ctrl><alt><numkey +/-> in XF86

Can't switch resolutions with <ctrl><alt><numkey +/-> in XF86

I'm running XFree86, 3.1.2 (S3-server), and according to the
XF86Config file there is a way of cycling through video modes using
<ctrl><alt><numkey +/->.  Using xev to dump x-events reveals that no
event is generated by pressing <numbey +/-> when <ctrl> and <alt> are
pressed, so I suspect that the server "swallows" them. I've spent some
time looking for a solution, to no success, could someone give me a
pointer, please?

BTW, while I'm at it, where could I find xvidtune and a 1280x1024
monitor mode entry entry for a MAG DX15F? (More generally, where could
I find the "most complete" list of monitor modes?)

I have a 10 GB UDMA IDE drive formatted with Windows.  The first partition
is FAT32, and the second is NTFS.  I can successfully mount the first, but
not the second.  Any ideas?

Suse 7.2 on i86
the drive is mounted on /dev/hdc, and I CAN see hda1, but not hda2
