Re: [vox-tech] X settings

First I am sorry for the confusing message. I was at my limits when I wrote 
it, but I have now fixed it. I set up my horizontal and vertical instead of 
using the monitor type and it worked fine. Thanks for pointing me in that 
direction. I have also installed Debian Woody on my new Laptop. I got a good 
deal on a KDS 14.1" TFT 256MB Memory and a 40GB Hard Drive. The install went 
fairly smooth after battling my desktop :-) I am starting to get the hang of 
X (well kind of)
