It doesn't matter how old they are as long as they have the Horizontal Sync
and Vertical Refresh right.  You can graft those values easily into a newer
control file.

The chipset will drive which server you select, and (maybe; you don't usually
have to tell it anything special for these) dot clocks.

Make sure you have lots and lots of modelines, and the server should try to 
pick the best one that Hsync and Vrefresh will let it get away with.
