does dvi lcd monitor work with linux


will it? is there a chance i may break anything? are there a standard set of dvi lcd monitor drivers that will work on all dvi lcd monitors like there are with vga. i noticed i was able to use high resolutions and refresh rates on linux with my crt vga monitor even though linux didn't recognize the monitor. does the same hold true with dvi lcd monitors?

i've seen them running, however i don't own one myself - so havn't set one up yet. isn't there any documentation to your release? i think i came across one when i was searching docus from XFree(maybe xspecs?). so maybe googlin' for it will also help.

however, the critical lines in the /etc/X11/XF86Config file (=Xserver configuration) are:
Section "Monitor"
...
HorizSync xx-xx
VertRefresh xx-xxx
...
