test it using that and if it works, you as root user (su -) copy the file over to /etc/X11

I have had two or three cases where I have had to generate an xorg.conf file for a machine that only gave me 640x480 resolution :(

For my machine:

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 [Radeon X1200 Series]

I have added line(s) 
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" 
so that I could get the best out of my old monitor.  

Also if you know your monitor output, ie., HorizSync and VertRefresh add them here 

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Monitor Model"
EndSection

For instance in my machine with my monitor I have:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier   "Monitor0"
    VendorName   "ViewSonic"
    ModelName    "ViewSonic G75f"
    HorizSync    30.0 - 86.0
    VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0
    Option         "DPMS"
EndSection


and added the Modes lines over here:

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
 	Device     "Card0"
 	Monitor    "Monitor0"

<snip> removed 1, 4, 8, 15, 16, ... Depth value 

 	SubSection "Display"
 		Viewport   0 0
 		Depth     24
        Modes "1600 X 1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" <== here
 	EndSubSection
 EndSection

HTH,

Antonio
