 	Thanks.  It reminded me of the days back when you had to manually 
setup X.  It was a pain-in-the-@$$ back then, too.

 	The problem was that the X defaults for H and V ranges weren't 
close to what the monitor specs were.  Same with the mode lines.  Manually 
plugging them in got it working.

 	I always did have a fondness for MVS, though.  ;-)

 	I stuck in 1280x1024 and 1024x768 manually and, when s-c-display 
ran, it filled in all the rest.

 	I've had this one for around 9 or so years (and it was new when I 
got it).  If I can devine where to put the info into bugzilla I'll do so. 
Just for google I'll put the info here as well.
