Or is that xrandr problem that about all distros appeared to have?

Xrandr --add  --verbose
man xrandr
Google xrandr add display?

... I have used to get Linux to display resolutions that are not there for
some reason.  If I find the Scripts I used for adding this in, I will post.

In Linux, I could do something about it., I have 19" monitors that are
hooked via KVM to identical HPDL380g4 machines.  Win2008r2 and now Win2012
will Max out at 1024x768.  I spent a heck of a great deal of time trying
adjust drivers. No luck.

So I use the Linux based HPdl380g4 machines connected to the same KVM to
connect to rdesktop to get 1280x1024 on windows.
