Yes, I know (sort of) why it started
at 1400 x 1050 (although shouldn't
the monitor prevent that?), but I
can't figure out why it won't start
at all when I put in a modes line
exactly like you have above.

Definitely over my head here, but
doesn't DRI require a maximum of 16
bpp (and does it speed things up
enough to justify running at 16 bpp)?

I can take those out. The automatic
configuration put them there, so I
didn't see any reason to delete them.
