Samsung SyncMaster 17GLs monitor setup (X)

Got it, at last.  Anyone setting up a Samsung 17 GLs feel free to
email me, and I will try to help you set it up.  Soon I will put
together an entry for the database.

   Howdy, Folks,

   Well, after a 18 hours of trying to set up X, I'm ready to seek help.
   Anyone out there using a new Samsung 17GLs?  Nice monitor, but I can't
   seem to find settings that X likes at 1024 x 768.  I'm using

           - ATI VGA Wonder XL 1.0 MB
           - Linux / Slackware

   Every reasonable (!) setting gives me either

           - ultra-low (below spec!) refresh (e.g., < 50 Hz)
   or
           - partially scrambled image (at ~53 Hz).

   I believe I understand VideoModes.doc, and I've applied it using the
   monitor timing specs, but I don't get what I should.  I use 1024 x 768
   / 256 color all the time (in OS/2) with no problem.

   Help!?  Thank you!

 In our lab, we have a few Samsung 17GLs monitors working under Linux/X11R5
with no problems with following video cards:

Paradize WD90C31;
Trident 9400;
Cirrus Logic CLGD5428.

Standard VESA-IBM modes/timings are OK with all of them - try 'em first!
