lol, sorry I've manly been working on my FC6 install for the last few hours and then I just rebooted and no Grub. It was there the first few times though. And restore failed so I'm taking a break now.<br><br>
Looks like a good working xorg.conf file. I'm not sure what you want me to say about it though. Xfree86 is pretty much dead.

depends, you see the modes line, in the section screen?<br>
those comments, ' "1280x1024" ' are your available resolutions, if you add one then it becomes available
