Changing Verical/Horizontal Scan rate


I am running Red Hat 8.0 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop. I can connect to a Flatiron LCD 568LM monitor via a USB cable, but I get "out off frequency" error message on the monitor when I boot up.

I'm assuming the way to get this to work is to change the scan rates. How do I do this?

Is there a better fix whereby the laptop detects the correct monitor?

Thanks,
Riddley

The Xfree86conf file is a good bet.
