Windows is happily running it at 1280x1024, 60Hz. So I know that I should
be able to do at least that much with feisty.

All I had to do in Windows was change the desktop properties and click! all
done :-( X -- or at least X in feisty -- doesn't seem to have any concept
that someone might want to change a monitor after the OS has been
installed. Anyway, I'm sure I can figure it out with the help I've been
given here; it's just that really one shouldn't need to ask or know about
any of this. Maybe gutsy will be better; I do intend to upgrade my wife's
computer to gutsy maybe a week or so after the early adopters have found
the main issues associated with upgrading.
