I've almost the same card:
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34M [GeForce FX Go5200 64M] (rev a1)
and no problem with the vesa driver.

Please provide all sections "Screen", including all subsections "Display" of your xorg.conf.

The same way you provided the extract of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf included in your first post.

Include the entire content of that file in your next post, it will be OK

Install nvidia drivers was *not* necessary to get 1024x768. Still, I guess you didn't send the *whole* content of /etc/X11/xorg.conf as I asked for. And the link you provided is broken.

Anyhow, if the nvidia driver is properly installed you should have now installed nvidia-setup or something like that. Try using it to setup your screen size.

Otherwise provide the *whole* content of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

If you have a new problem please open a new thread and provide useful information, e.g. output of uname -a.

Then as long as your computer works, why bother which kernel it uses ?

thanks brother

Code:
[root@samhost Desktop]# uname -a
Linux samhost.localdomain 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686 #1 SMP Tue Nov 18 12:19:59 EST 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

So you have a working kernel. You may upgrade if you want but unless you really need it -- e.g. for security reasons -- that's not urgent. Meanwhile did you solve your screen size issue ?

Take care
