It should have no problems under any linux distributions.  If you cannot
find the exact model listed in the installation menu, then choose
"custom type" and manually specify the vertical and horizontal frequency
values.  You would find this information in the documentation that came
with the monitor and also on the back of monitor.  Thats it.  

Hope that helps.

I must have reinstalled it at least 2o times since yesterday with always the same result. Once I get into the post install stage and just before X gets configured I am asked to choose my monitor (a KDS VS 555 High resolution monitor, which is not mentioned on the list. They have 550 and many others which I have tried). Right after my selection I get this message:
