A something like a following xorg.conf shouldn't be sufficient?

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Configured Video Device"

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier    "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor       "Configured Monitor"
    Device        "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection "Display"
        Depth     24
        Modes     "1280x1024"

I got that sample from random comment from net, but - as far i can
see - it is a valid example.
