How to get XFree86 modelines for my card & monitor


Hrllo I'm using Debian 3.0r4 Woody with Xfree 4.10
My videocard is ATI Rage128 8Mb and 14'' noname monitor. I'm sure, my monitor & card supports 1024x768 and 800x600 (tryed another linux distribs), but Xfree shows only 640x480. How to get correct modelines for Xfree86?

Don't know if these will help, they come from my old Rh7.3 XF86Config file:

# Modes can be specified in two formats. A compact one-line format, or
# a multi-line format.

# These two are equivalent

# ModeLine "1024x768i" 45 1024 1048 1208 1264 768 776 784 817 Interlace

# Mode "1024x768i"
# DotClock 45
# HTimings 1024 1048 1208 1264
# VTimings 768 776 784 817
# Flags "Interlace"
# EndMode

# This is a set of standard mode timings. Modes that are out of monitor spec
# are automatically deleted by the server (provided the HorizSync and
# VertRefresh lines are correct), so there's no immediate need to
# delete mode timings (unless particular mode timings don't work on your
# monitor). With these modes, the best standard mode that your monitor
# and video card can support for a given resolution is automatically
# used.
