Slackintosh 12.1 ibook G4 xorgconfig horizontal sync & vertical refresh rate


Trying to install Slackintosh on my ibook G4. I am attempting to configure X using xorgconfig. However I am unsure what my horizontal sync or vertical refresh rate is. I have been scouring the internet and apple support to find this out. This is the details of my video card:
ATI Mobility Radeon 9200:

Chipset Model: ATY,RV280M9+
Type: Display
Bus: AGP
VRAM (Total): 32 MB
Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
Device ID: 0x5c63
Revision ID: 0x0001
ROM Revision: 113-xxxxx-142
Color LCD:
Display Type: LCD
Resolution: 1024 x 768
Depth: 32-bit Color
Built-In: Yes
Core Image: Not Supported
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes
Quartz Extreme: Supported
Status: No display connected

Does anyone know what settings I should use? Thanks in advance.

Thanks that seems to have done the trick. Sorry very new to Slack, all the reference material I had said to use xorgconfig which I tried numerous times but then got error messages. Again thanks for pointing this out to me.
