Unhappy Get proper resolution on VX910 with SuSe 10.1 Open source


ok I have SuSe 10.1 OSS on an Aliewnware 17' 51M with 9600/9700 ATI 128 MB card connected through a Belkin SOHO KVM displaying on a ViewSonic VX910 19' monitor.
I get great display on the Alienware screen but can't get the proper display on the VX910. I can see both at the same time.
I have Xorg / XF86Config setup for 1280x1024 or 1024x768.
I get a HUGE display that is out of bounds on the VX910.
No matter what I set my resolution for 800x600 even, I get the HUGE screen on the VX910. I have mucked about with the config files but no go.
I have Debian installed on another box and can't even get X to display on this monitor which is in the HCL for Linux.
I have read some posts about xorg and xf86 config files getting confused. Has anyone out there been through this?
