If your aim is simply to get a stable display (at the expense of video
quality,) you could try more conservative values for these.  I have the
following in my XF86Config:

  HorizSync     31.5 - 35.1
  VertRefresh   50.0 - 70.0

This lets me get 16-bit colour at 800x600 resolution, which is all I
need.  If you want higher resolutions, you can start from there and
gradually increase the values until you get a range which is large
enough to support more colours and/or pixels, but not so large that it
lets your display go all woobly.

Correct, they do not need quotes.

I get this all the time too.  I think it might be a bug in the install
process, actually...
