After changing the monitor type, the video settings were able to be
changed. The original monitor type was Generic CRT with the highest
display settings. The monitor is not on the list (AMW CM1997PF 19")
and is capable of the settings. The monitor type was changed to a
monitor on the list and the video settings held.
Monitor selection is done in first boot.
If we can't probe your monitor - paste the output of running as root
kudzu -p -b ddc then you need to select it.
then you have to select the monitor in the first boot screen. If the
monitor does not probe and is not in our monitor list feel free to
attach a INF file from the manufacturer supplied driver disks for
windows and we'll get it added
Output of kudzu -p -b ddc

I was unable to find a drivers disk for the monitor, here is a link to
the site for the specs.
As we don't have access to the inf file from the site and being unable
to probe the monitor, I'm closing this.
If you find the CD-ROM with the driver inf file feel free to re-open
and attach the inf file.
s-c-display and firstboot should allow you to change monitor, etc and
make changes to the monitor and not the card. My reading of comment
#2 is that this is working.
