   I have several V480s on a KVM with a Compaq rackmount LCD, ond one of
them simply refuses to work out a resolution/timing with the LCD. I
booted it with a CRT attached, then typed in the command to force a
display setting that the LCD's manual claims to accept, and swapped in
the LCD cable before hitting the Return key. When I found values that
seemed acceptable, I put them into an rc script, and bit my tongue.
   I'm using plain ol' PGX64 (?) cards in the V480s, so the sae trick
may work for you.
