Need to get vga card to work with composite monitor.

I am almost tempted to go back to an old slackware to try this. Anyway, I found a circuit (with just a few resistors) that allows vga output to go to composite input. To my amazement it actually works and it is very clear, but has a double screen. I am told, to fix it you need to change the horizontal sync and or refresh rate for the card. (17 instead of 35). How would I do this in xorg.conf?

Hi, I am not an expert in Slackware, but i know about ubuntu. Hope this page will give you some idea. May be there is some different method in Slackware.
