How? I'm stuck in 800x600 hell.

OK, a little more info. I've got an nForce board and I rpm'ed the Mandrake 9 specific drivers.

if I go into the Mandrake Control Center and under Hardware --> Resolution I try to change it to 1024x768 it says I need to restart Kwin. so after it logs me out, I start KDE back up again and the resolution hasn't changed. What gives?

Try increasing the resolution by pressing the keypad '+' and decreasing it by pressing the keypad '-'

Figured it out... display driver not installed like I thought it was. Gotta get that installed correctly and then I'll revisit this thread.
