Thanks - that's the main thing I needed. Having looked around
there some, I think maybe I'll make another attempt at
building my own opensource radeon driver that
lets me actually specify a ModeLine before I try nvidia. Of the
two sets of bugs I encounter with the different drivers, the
radeon driver is less deadly (the picture merely flickers off
rather than the system freezing up hard as a rock).

I think I do have a nvidia PCI (not PCIe) video card laying around.
I could always give that a try to check out the drivers before
I spring for a new PCIe card (of course, the drivers may work
different on the PCIe bus :-).
