I would start by keeping things as simple as possible. Based on the
kernel you are running, I'm assuming that you are running Squeeze.
Use an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file that looks like this:
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Just those four lines are all that should be necessary.
If that doesn't work, post the contents of Xorg.0.log from that
I would be surprised if any TFT monitor does not support EDID.
EDID came out in 1994, and virtually all monitors manufactured
since then have it.
