cant get resolutions higher than 800x600 in suse linux 9.1.


When i right click on my desktop and go to configure desktop/size & orientation(using KDE), i cant bring my resolution up any higher than 800x600.. I got the latest drivers for my Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 and still nothing. I really need a higher resolution because when i start Enemy Territory its windowed at 1024x768 and i cant see the rest. If anyone can help me with this id greatly appreciate it, Thanks!

Is it personal or pro?
Use sax2 to handle screen resolution: system > Resolution
