Are you sure it's not because the Dell 2001fp lacks sync on green?  Early
macs didn't have composite sync, they did sync on green, and some monitors
(like that NEC mentioned and quite often ViewSonic) support both composite
sync and sync on green, while Dell monitors don't support sync on green
(that I know of).
