X starts automatically, I'm not sure how to get it not to load. I checked XF86Config, as well as my monitor's specs, and the right refresh rates seem to be in there as well as all the possible resolutions (including 1280x1024@60Hz). Yet I still can't get 1280x1024 to be accessible. Subpixel hinting helps noticeably, but it's still not as clear as in Windows at my screen's native resolution.
EDIT: subpixel hinting doesn't always work well - ran into a couple websites, like Slashdot, where text has a red or blue aura around it.
