I think it's talking about the dotclock. Do you have any modelines in your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4? If so, post them.

Yeah I read in the manpage that you have to specify a clock value in MHz (as a floating point) of your card. You'll have to look that up. Try commenting out the line altogether. Maybe it's freaking out because you've specified the clock option without a value.
