Unhappy Brightness Adjust?


I've a kinda different question here. I've a very bad monitor, a Sansung Samatron 75e and, for a long ago, my screen is very dark. I know, it's soon the end to this monitor, but as I don't have much money for a new one, I've to someway higher the brightness via software, cause via hardware is already at the max...

I'm using Redhat 9.0/Gnome and Nvidias latest drivers. I know in Winslow we can adjust the brightness easily through Nvidias tools.
Is there any way to adjust brightness?

Any help would be great as always

Thanks in advance

xgamma -gamma x.x


xgamma -gamma 2.5 would increase your gamma to 2.5x normal (or something like that, it makes it brighter, thats all I know)
