    That's a great idea, but look for HOWTOs on http://www.tldp.org/ instead. They are more likely to have the latest versions.

    tldp.org have more up2date information that ibiblio? You really think so? Ibiblio is hosted by unc.edu and gets millions of dollars of funding to help do research in the computer field. They were the _big_ site back in the mid 90s for linux and BSD. This is where linux apps got "big" back then. They have like 20 distributions mirrors, and house a lot of miscellaneous programs like telnet and ping and gpm and other old console apps. I think they are just as up to date as tldp.org.

    No offense, sorry, didn't mean to rant.
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.

    Sorry, I didn't know about ibiblio. To my eyes that was just a random site happening to host that HOWTO (now that I look more carefully at the URL I see that it isn't likely to be the case).

    Wow

    I started this thread what feels like a million years ago, and my god how much I've learned since then.

    To all the people who helped me when I was starting out, thank you and to answer the question, there wasn't really anything wrong with the configuration, just the monitor itself. It had a set of non-standard refresh rates that when adjusted, fixed the problem.
