imac xorg.conf PPC All versions

There is alot of confusion over The graphical display settings on older PPC imac computers.

Here I've tried to put together xorg.conf file s that people claim to work for the differing imac versions.  Ymmv. Feed back welcome if you have an imac running GNU/Linux please post it along with your machine model.

Also see my old imac, emac, how to for Debian.
