If you poke around on Dell's Web site, they have an RPM with an
XF86Config file for this display (at least, I found one for my
Latitude C600 with a Rage Mobility M3 and the same 1400x1050
display).  The Monitor section I have is:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier "Monitor0"
        VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName "Monitor Model"
        HorizSync 31.5-90.0
        VertRefresh 60.0
        Modeline "1400x1050" 108.000 1400 1448 1462 1688 1050 1050 1053 1066
