After digging through many doc files and the documentation available on
xfree86.org, I found I can use fbset to get the correct settings. And after
readding the virtual setting in the config file, it even worked. Dang - the
server really should give a more meaningfull message than "no valid modes
found" when virtual is missing :-/

But it _does_ work now!
