  Yes I did.  I was wrong, I didn't set the ModeLine, I set the Modes 
  to "1280x1024" in the Display sections.  Then when I started xfce4
  if would come up right.  Before it would start then xorg would crash.
  I think it was probing for higher resolutions and by limiting it I 
  was able to get xfce4 to start up.  

  Speaking of ModeLines, I have to find one now.  I came home and my 
  Proview LCD was caputz.  I called them, they will warranty it.  But
  I have to ship it to California.  Now I'm hooking my old crt up, no 
  fun once you have used an LCD.
