I have no idea how to figure that out. If you can tell me, I'd be glad to 
provide any additional information that I can.

I don't see that directive in my xorg.conf (using the "advanced" options for 
monitor setup via dpkg-reconfigure):
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Omnibook LCD"
        Option          "DPMS"
        HorizSync       30-60 
        VertRefresh     50-75

ps info from the laptop:
rbochan@lap:~$ ps ax |grep x
1002 tty1     S+     0:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/startx -dpi 100
1018 tty1     S+     0:00 xinit xterm -dpi 		
100 -- -auth /home/rbochan/.serverauth.1002
1076 ?        S      0:00 xfe

Seems to show it properly, but the fonts are still small, and KInfocenter 
still shows 75x75 dpi.
