Didn't work was either X didn't come up or it locked up the machine and
ctl-apple-backspace didn't have any effect, causing a complete power off.

This must have been something else that was causing the problem, since I have
just replaced my numbers with yours and they work, as well as the others that
I thought didn't work (which work also)...hmmm....and this may have had to do
with the Option "UseFBDev", since that was added at some point.

The question I have is what the spec is for this TFT? I left it with your
numbers for now and it looks the same as it did with the hard coded numbers
(i.e., 31.5h/78.7v), but I would like to see what the actual spec is for the
TFT. Is there a place online that would have that on Apple's site?
