"*It* will determine"? *What* will determine? You mean that all you
need in xorg.conf is the hsynch and vsynch values and the right driver
name in Section "Device" and X (in my case xorg) will figure out all
the rest?  I can just elide the modelines from xorg.conf?

FWIW, it seems like learning to use install/setup menus to get X
working right is just as tedious and error prone as learning
to manually edit xorg.conf/XF86Config.
