Do most laptop displays have INF files shipped on the laptop CDs?  I've tried 
and failed to find any INF files for any inspiron/latitidue built-in LCD on 
Dell's site and their FTP, otherwise I would have added them when I added all 
the other Dell monitors to system-config-display about 2 months ago.  I don't 
think you can find them online, I think you ahve to have the CDs.
