Karen: I'm curious as to how you arrived at these values, particularly the 
three 'Option' entries. Was that from reading the man xorg.conf or if not, do 
you remember where? My problem is different from yours, and my model is the 
9200SE, so I'm not sure whether to try these settings or not, and I'd like to 
know more about what they are doing before I try them.
