Composite video is an analogue signal going to the TV. Nothing
comes from the TV back to the computer. So the log can't do
more than confirm the resolution and refresh rate.

Drill? I have no background in TV but have read
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composite_video . The Compaq
Technical Reference Guide, Table 7-5, lists resolutions up to
1024x768 and mentions separate images for each of two displays.

Was there proprietary software to operate composite video of
this machine? If so it would have been for Windows and there
might be no equivalent in Linux.
