If the user knows the brand and model of card, then that will be a no
brainer.  If the user does not, then we can try superprobe.  As a last
resort, we can hope they have Win95 installed and try to raid the Win95
configuration for the information.  :)  Does anyone know enough about the
Win95 registry to try and pick it apart in such a way?  :)

Microsoft was kind enough to provide us with a complete list of virtually
every monitor known to man.  :)  I have been meaning to parse it out into
a model/modeline database but I have not yet gotten to it.  :\
