You could have a look at the Video-Timings-HOWTO (comes in the HOWTOs on
most distributions) about how this works, and why your screen's being
displayed a little off. xvidtune (IIRC) is one of the tools which is
reccommended for use in that, with a huge warning. Anyway, at least it'll
give you some advice as to where (any why) you could go wrong. There
really shouldn't be any problem using xvidtune, though, if my limited
experience is anything to go by.
