Default Re: 1920x1080 mode not available?

I answered my own question and now have 1920x1080... nice and sharp, solid, CAD apps look great, even plays MythTV 720p programs fluidly (1080i jumps around like it's lacking horsepower somewhere on an Athlon 64 X2 5200+ w/8GB ram, maybe the 6150/430 chipset can't keep up?) The display is now a thing of beauty!

First as root: xmode -x 1920 -y 1080 -r 52

52
Modeline "1920x1080" 148.16 1920 2032 2240 2560 1080 1081 1084 1113


Then edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor"
Option "CalcAlgorithm" "XServerPool"
DisplaySize 510 290
HorizSync 30-81
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
ModelName "SYNCMASTER P2370HD(DIGITAL)"
VendorName "SAMSUNG"
VertRefresh 56-75
UseModes "Modes[0]"
EndSection

Section "Modes"
Identifier "Modes[0]"
Modeline "1920x1080" 148.00 1920 2008 2052 2200 1080 1084 1089 1125 +HSync +VSync
Modeline "1280x1024" 135.00 1280 1296 1440 1768 1024 1025 1028 1130
EndSection

Section "Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1920x1080" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600"
EndSubSection

Identifier "Screen[0]"
Monitor "Monitor[0]"
EndSection



At this point as root I executed "init 3" followed by logging in as root and executing "init 5" After init 5, X started in 1920x1080 mode.
