Thanks. I've also found this page:
http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi/0650/bks/SGI_Admin/books/IA_ConfigOps/sgi_html/ch09.html#LE63851-PARENT
which appears to be the same, though.

They say nothing about supported values of the "monitor" variable in
PROM. After googling around I tried to "setenv monitor l", but it
doesn't seem to have any effect. A few people on the usenet say it's
possible to change the resolution only from within IRIX.
