Extracting the edid from windows works great. You just have to add the following lines to the device section of a minimal xorg.conf.
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0"
Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/path/to/edid.bin"
Where the path is to your edid.bin file that you extracted from within windows. I used the program softMCCS to extract the edid. Make you you save it as binary (.bin). I can attach the EDID I got for the VPCCW tomorrow when I have the laptop set up (I am posting this from another computer).
The only quick so far is that when you quit X the console is not restored for some reason.
Congratulations! Could you post a mini how-to-setup-nvidia-driver, including that last step that everyone was waiting for? I have a Sony Vaio VPCCW with GT230M, Ubuntu 9.10.
Did you manage to get the native screen resolution?
Can't wait to hear more from you. Again, congratulations!
