You have to trust in xorg, which tries to get everything right. Sad thing, it does get wrong on Apple Computers quit often.

A good point to start is read-edid by John Fremlin ( see http://john.fremlin.de/programs/linux/read-edid/ )

Of course you have to set up an xorg.conf, but you should use the output of 
get-edid | parse-edid
in your "Monitor" section. This has worked for a eMac with debian lenny which stuck at 1024x768. Now it's 1280x1024.

I use that with fbdev I had to state. And you should use a short xorg.conf with the essential information. xorg isn't that bad in guessing the other things. For an inspiration you might lokk at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6821843
