What TV and country?  You should be able to just "connect it up" and
"have it work" but really, the play it safe, you can plug in safe
values like:

HorizSync 30-50
VertRefresh 60


Modes 640x480

And then go up from there.  Really though, I haven't fried a TV yet
(knock on something wood-ish) and I've accidentally had some really
bad values in my xorg.conf  The nice thing is that (for me so far)
xorg only displays what the TV reports it can handle unless I force it
with a ModeLine or something, and even then I haven't had much luck :D
