You need to use the Frame Buffer Device. Have a look at the man entries
for fbset: the -s option will show the current display settings,
including the monitor frequency, the -x option gives you the details
for the XF86Config entries. There's some info on the Debian.org
I'll mail you a copy of my /etc/X11/XF86Config.
