    monitor

    I am sure this problem can be sovled simply, but I am new to linux and have yet to buy a tutorial book on it. I have an LCD monitor with a native res of 1280x1024 . I have the hdd verson installed and i can not, for the life of me, get KDE to go up to 1280x1024. THe monitor detects fine at boot, but once it enters the GUI it shrinks to 1024x768. Also, if this is the problem, I run a dual head BFG 6800 GT setup with both monitors capable of 1280x1024. I want to be able to use this res on both monitors, along with a 75hz refresh rate so the LCD doesnt look fuzzy, and also I need to know how to use the Dual head prperly to be able to utalize both monitors.

    any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

    the thing is a can't set it past 1024x768. I checked my XF86Config-4 and it is using the vesa display driver. I think the reason i cant make it go higher is because fo the driver, but each time i try to install teh nvidia driver off of nvidia.com through the command line, it gives some kernel error. all i need to know is how to override the monitor settings so they can go up to 1280x1024, and how to install the nivida driver (i know what to edit and how to point it to the kernel.h file, but i think i need to do something with recompiling the kernel which i am clueless about)
