hmm, i _think_ we are talking about different things. i'm not having a bit
depth issue, i'm talking about my heads being "out of order" as far as X is
concerned. think of it this way, i want them to be laid out 1 0 2 instead of
0 1 2 which X handles very well. it's really only a matter of being anal. i
can live with it the way it is now (0 1 2) but i'd like the dtlogin to be on
the middle tube instead of the left one.

poop. hmm, anyone know what sort of electronics doo-dad could be built to
combine sync and green into a single channel? it might be time to move this
to the classic computer mailing list since those guys are all into repairing
monitors and crap, so they know all that stuff i don't care to learn :)
