I just noticed that my monitor (ViewSonic VA930m LCD) now works in only one
resolution: 1280 x 1024, millions of colors. How did this happen and how do
I fix it? Computer is a G4 MDD normally running OS 10.5.8, but when I
re-start in 10.4.11, all resolutions and color choices are available. I
recently did a fresh re-install of 10.5.8, but that's the only change.

Compare the libraries for the display settings.
Open two windows or use a file manager utility like FileDaemon to look at
system files of each side by side comparing all display relevant files.
Figure out what is missing.

Did you change any hardware lately?
Did you rest PRAM and CUDA?

No hardware changes.
PRAM and CUDA reset.
In checking System/Library/Displays for both OS 10.4 11 and OS 10-5-8,
the only thing I find in each is a folder labeled "Overrides"
containing various "DisplayVendorID" folders, and there are a few more
such folders in the Overrides folder for 10.5.8.
