How can I set high monitor refresh rate in Mandrake?

I'm trying to set my monitor at 100 Hz Vertical refresh rate.

Whatever I do, it shows only 85 Hz... If I set the 100 Hz vertical and 81.3 or any range as horizontal in XF86Config, X doesn't load saying it couldn't find the range. If I set the range for vertical from 90 to 100, it shows the virtual screen, that I can move with my mouse

My monitor DCC tells that max vertical refresh rate is 85, but it works perfectly in Windows XP at 100! Can I turn off monitor DCC?

I've tried xvidtune, it changes refresh rate to 89 and made the screen wide, but i want 100!!!

Standard MAndrake config tools allows only 85 Hz too... =((

Please help! I've moved to linux 2 month ago in office, and there it works excellent.. But at home it makes me upset

My monitor is Sony CPD-200GST, videocard Radeon 7200, Linux Mandrake 10.1 Community
