compatibility of LG flatron

I am thinking of buying the new 19-inch LG flatron L194WT flat-panel which boasts a contrast ratio of 2000:1. I was wondering if anybody out there has had problems getting it work on a linux system.
My graphics card is nvidia GeForce4 MX 440 which is linux compatible.

Thanks for your inputs.

Monitors simply render the video signal they receive -- there are no Linux dependencies. (As you may have noticed, there is no Monitor section in the LQ HCL.) In other words, while you may need to install a driver for your video card, there is no such thing as a Linux driver for a monitor. If you like the monitor, buy it.
