it's a bit tricky, the only way to really do it is to find the appropriate modeline. Use the output of various different resolutions and vertical refresh rates for "gtf" until you settle on one which doesn't interfere with the ones windows uses. Try these:

gtf 1280 1024 75
gtf 1280 1024 85
gtf 1280 1024 100
gtf 1280 960 75
gtf 1280 960 85
gtf 1280 960 100
gtf 1152 864 75
gtf 1152 864 85
gtf 1152 864 100

1152x864 might work at a lower refresh rate... maybe.
