I find some config files have to many options...
Apologees Rodonn for this side track.

Thats what I've seen before, how ever after setting up /etc/X11/xorg.config properly on my laptop I was limited to 1024x768. I deleted XF86Config and cntrl+alt+bksp and got 1200x800. I reboot and the boot messages tell me my video card was not detected and as per a script in the /PCBSD folder it copies a XFree86 config to /etc/X11 at boot time. cp /PCBSD/cardDetection/XF86Config.orig /etc/X11/XF86Config I think.
I tried it many times and still had to rm it & restart X. However after I backed up the /PCBSD file and replaced it with my xorg under the right name my system boots with my X settings, much better performance from my Radeon but only software Mesa for OpenGL support.
