death - death I say...

Parse error on line 44 of section Monitor in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
        "Panning" is not a valid keyword in this section.

nope - no workee - it's an X killer, and in the man page for xorg.conf
on Fedora-11-Beta (x-server 1.6), there is absolutely no mention of
Panning at all.

FWIW - you should be able to make 'panning' work via xrandr on your Asus
with what I gave you above (adjust for the name of your display) and I
suppose I could probably add the panning command to a startup script
after login but it seems neater/cleaner/ and an end to the regression
that I could accomplish so easily on Fedora Core 4.

Thanks

Craig
