Horrible font on Toshiba 740CDT

Hi List

I've just installed potato on my Toshiba 740CDT.  When I open a console in
X, the fonts are horrible.  Much like what it looks like in windows when you
have the incorrect screen resolution and or colour depth.  I've not had this
problem before, but then again, this is the first laptop install I've done.

I'm running the SVGA X server, 1024x768 60hz 16.

The spec says the machine will run at 1024x768 at 60Hz, with 64k colours.
I've also enabled 640x480 and 800x600, but 1024x768 is the default.
Interestingly, when I press the <ctrl><alt> +/- I can only cycle through two
modes, which suggests that they aren't all available.  I'm wondering if
1024x768 isn't working.  Is there any way to find what the current
resolution is?

Any ideas?  Till next time...
