 I have a PCG-C1VJ (Japanese version of PCG-C1VN) and use woody on
this machine. Of cause X woks fine :-) with this Mode line:

Modeline "1024x480" 65.00 1024 1032 1176 1344 480 488 494 560 -hsync -vsync

 I recommend to use XFree86 4.0.1h or later. Current woody's xfree86
packages (4.0.1-11) based on 4.0.1Z.

 XFree86 4 serias ATI driver of 4.0.1g or earler does not work on this
machine correctly (need some patches).

---- From CHANGELOG related this fix
XFree86 4.0.1h (4 December 2000)
(snip)
1067. Fix ATI clock generator recognition when an adapter BIOS cannot be
      retrieved (Linus Torvalds).
1066. Fix int10 and ATI driver for video BIOSes larger than 64kB
      (Marc La France).
----

 XFree86 3.3.6's Mach64 server does not work. SVGA server could work
but a little buggy (When X was finished, console would be  broken...)
