Sorry hit the send by mistake. :)
What you want to do is track down your monitor model.
Find these values and set them in the xorg.conf file

The lower numbers allow for smaller resolutions, this covers VGA modes,
like 640x480 and smaller.  30 is the min Horiz, and 50 min Vertical. 
I think that stems back to the old EGA cards. I remember overclocking a
video card one time to 32.0 :) talk about smoke and panic... lots a
whistling and probably only frequencies a dog could hear. 

Well, once you get these two values - it will determine the modlines
needed. So no need to calc those anymore. :)  What you do need is
resolutions and color depth.  If you find the max for you monitor, for
17" probably be 1280x1024 if you have a higher end model.  Look for the
maximum resolution for your monitor - it will list it on the tech page.

Here is an example of the modes, put the default one first then go down
the list.  You can switch between resolutions using

SubSection "Display"
Depth     24
Modes "1920x1440" "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768"
"800x600" "640x480"

xorg will calculate the best freq to use with each mode, all you need to
do is suggest them. :) modlines used to be fun.

Oh well
good luck
