screen freq range problem


I have Knoppix (hd install) running on my Toshiba 1800 series laptop. My only problem is the screen's frequency range.
After checking the manual, my LCD freqs are:

Horizontal freq: 48 kHz
Vertical freq: 60 Hz

All these parameters are for 1024x768 resolution.

When configuring the freqs using kxconfig, it asks for a range
for each of the vert and hori freqs. When i give kxconfig a number for each of those fields instead of a range, kxconfig whines. What should i do?

Should i just edit /etc/X11/XF86Config directly and enter only one number (48 and 60) for each of the freqs instead of providing ranges?

Better to use dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 then when you get to the monitor section use the advanced option.
