Any Way to Force Refresh Rate in XF86Config?

I have a dual boot Linux/Windows system using a Samsung LCD monitor. The native resolution is 1280x1024@75Hz. The specs state that HorizSync is 30-81 and VertRefresh is 56-75. When I run KXConfig it will only let me set 1280x1024 to 74Hz with these numbers for H/V. The problem is Windows only lets me choose between 72Hz and 75Hz and then the image always needs adjusting when booting from one OS to the other. How do I tell X to use 75Hz for 1280x1024?

Thanks, olias

Sorry for asking this question when it was already here. I did a search for 'LCD' and found a similar question. It lead me to Tomi Engdahl Calculator for video timings. All better now
