Really? That simple? I guess I must have been unlucky then, for when I tried it, it just kept complaining about duplicate metamodes and wouldn't save the xorg.conf. The reason I then went directly to the xorg.conf instead was that appearently lots of people had that problem, but after what you say, I shall give it another go.
I assume that would work with an 'enable' too, then?

I would still be nice to know if my above points are right or wrong, though. You know, just for my own education.
It would also be nice with a keyboard shortcut or two for it...

Thanks for the reply, though. Much appreciated.
