Thanks for the good info. It's right on target.

The problem was taken care of about a month ago and is working fine now,
if you can say 1024 x 768 looks good on a 21" monitor. ;-)

This spare monitor was used only on this one PC during an upgrade from
Sarge to Etch, and now during an oops troubleshooting phase, hunting an
intermittent hardware failure, so it isn't a big deal. The PC normally
runs headless, using SSH for any maintenance, and presently for tailing
logs while it cooks.

Thanks for your input.

The EULA sounds like it was written by a team of lawyers who want to tell me what I can't do. The GPL sounds like it was written by a human being, who wants me to know what I can do.
