Mh, I think I should have included here that the video card is an ATi Radeon
Mobility M6, and the native resolution of the panel is 1400x1050 (reported
as Samsung LTN150P1-L02).

Don't think that'll do, as -from what I've come to understand so far- this
development is geared towards the modern, more hi-end cards. I can see that,
no complaints.
I'll try the vesa driver first before diving into your proposal; thx anyway.
