Not here. 
A) It writes modes my monitor can't do (or used to, haven't used it in forever)
B) It won't write a multi-resolution file (so I can't switch resolutions on

I just meant some sort of reasonable auto-config tool, don't really care

Cool - maybe the original poster will be interested? I have a mach64 (Rage 
II+) which has been accelerated for quite a while now.
