Yet another Resolution Problem
 
Ok, so here is the issue. I have in SaX 2 the Monitor set to 1600x1200 which this monitor is able to support. I have the resolution set to 1280x1024 70hz, BUT if I check in the Kdesktop Configuration (right click, configure desktop, display) it shows the max "Screen[0]" can go to is 1024x768.

Confusing enough? During installation I didn't get the full screen either, I just got the top corner, as though the computer wanted to go to 1600x1200 but the monitor didn't allow it.

xorg.conf shows the following for screen:

Decided to add device in there. I have the Depth set to 24, so you can see all the reso's are listed there.

So what the freak?

Eh, I figured it out.. It was the stupid monitor, for SOME REASON some Tecra M1's have monitors that can support 1280 x 1024, BUT latter models of Tecra M1's could only support 1025 x 768
