screen stretched vertically
 
I just installed linux on an old dell dimension 2350, with the default everything, including graphics card and monitor. Everything went well, except that I noticed that the screen is slightly stretched vertically, so that anything that should look like a perfect circle, looks like an oval. Some people might not even notice, but it is driving me slowly insane.

Is this a problem that might be correctable in xorg.conf? If so, what variables do I mess with? Just in case, I'll post the xorg.conf.
