Re: xorg.conf resolution issues

Since I use a CRT, I have to choose resolutions that are in the ration of 4 to 3

1280 x 960 is the 4 to 3 ratio. 1280 x 1024 is definitely not. LCD displays have a 1280x1024 ratio (I think).

1280x1024 may not be 4x3, but it was a VESA standard resolution *long* before LCDs became affordable and popular:

	640x480 -> 800x600 -> 1024x768 -> 1280x1024 -> 1600x1200

was the progression of CRT capabilities (IIRC). Somewhere along the way, Sun stuck in 1152x900 (when 1152x864 is the 4x3 size) with their workstations. So not every CRT size is necessarily 4x3.
