I can help you with the monitor part. I have a Samsung 712N that runs at 1280x1024. Towards the end of xorg.conf there is a section that looks something like this: Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Card0" Monitor "Monitor0" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 Modes "1280x1024" EndSubSection That's what's in mine, and thats what gets the 1280x1024 display. You're also going to have to look for something that looks like this: Section "Monitor" #DisplaySize 340 270 # mm Identifier "Monitor0" HorizSync 30.0 - 81.0 VertRefresh 56.0 - 75.0 # Option "DPMS" EndSection I think using 'Xorg -configure' will generate a pretty good xorg.conf file (actually xorg.conf.new) that you can look at, make changes to, and test with 'Xorg -configure xorg.conf.new', you'll have to use ^Backspace to get out of it, but you'll find out if you've get things set right and if the mouse is working.
