Suse Hardware Tool + Unknown Monitor


I have 9.1 Personal Installed w/ my old CTX Monitor. Suse sees the monitor has a Vesa Monitor which is fine and dandy. However everytime I log into KDE I get the HARDWARE tool beeping at me that my monitor dont report the X & Y values and that it might affect my fonts. Which is fine and dandy. How do I stop the Hardware tool from reporting this every time?

I solved the problem this way on my computer:

I looked in my owner manual for the monitor and found that the screen size was 310mm by 230mm. I wanted resolution=1024x768 16 bit

Run sax2
Go to monitor and click on properties and then 'expert' tab to enter
'Check desktopGeometry' values as (X-310, Y-230). And also go to 'Colour
and Resolution' to change colour bit and resolution to resolution=1024x768 16 bit. Save and exit
'sax2'. Reboot system or restart X server.
