Yep. But not knowing why it's not working, I figure (based on
experience) start with the lowest common denominator (so to speak) and
work up from there.

He had tried vesa in a parameter to system-config-display, as suggested
by Alan, and it hadn't worked. So I figured try something that _ought_
to work on stuff even 10 years old (or older) and go from there.

I have high hopes that the BIOS settings might be the key.
