    nvidia screen resolution problems, but right xfree86 config?

    hi,

    ive hdinstalled knoppix on my toshiba 3000-514. additional ive installed the nvidia drivers for my geforce2go like mentioned in the nvidia driver howto.

    anything is perfect, but the screensize is just 800x600 and i want 1024x768. the xf86 config looks good. can you imagine wheres the problem?

    heres my xf86config:
