  Oh, I've read most of it... but that's not what I was referring to.

  I'd rather build a database, that connects Freq,DotClock,MaxX,MaxY,Depth and
the make a program that sets the Display mode, pauses for 10 seconds, and then
asks the user to confirm the mode was ok.  The card can be probed for the Dot
clock, and memory which delimits the Depth/Width*Height.  Or, in a similar
manner Windows does it...

  That would work on all systems, and a proper way of doing things.
