The best way I have found to do HDTV ModeLines is to take a spare HDD
i have laying around, and swap it into my FE and load Windoze on it. 
Then I gave it all the latest updates from Win Update and Nvidia then
ran PowerStrip.  There is a feature in PowerStrip that lets you print
out the Linux ModeLine.  Pretty cool.
