Xorg VESA driver - higher resolutions

Default configuration of VESA driver allows resolutions 640x480 and 800x600.
It is quite simple to get higher resolutions - in section Monitor of /etc/X11/xorg.conf we have to set horizontal and vertical refresh rates. By default these values are set to lowest, safe area.

Here are my settings:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Monitor Model"

        HorizSync    42.0 - 80.0
        VertRefresh  55.0 - 100.0 

X.org is able to work at 1280x1024 with vertical refresh rate 75Hz. HTH
