Mmm, well that's part of the problem. The way I configured the old one was
during the Debian install, and I'm not certain how to get back to re-runing
the configuration dialog.
I have edited the Xf4 config file by hand since then to fix some issues
with the mouse, and resolution, but I could easily replicate those changes
on a freshly generated one.
Also, does it probe the dislplay? That is I know it does for new monitors,
do LCD flat panels also have support for this? If so, then I guess I need
to wait for it to actually arive to do anything.
