Well I'm using Mandrake 9.2 and when I get to my screen, it is WAYYYYYY too big...like I have to scroll to look at stuff. It's about 4x too big. How do I fix this?

assuming you mean once X is started, and that your XF86Config file is ok, have you tried Ctrl-Alt-[+,-] to scroll thru resolutions?

(thats the + and - on the keypad, not next to bksp)

if that doesn't help, maybe try looking at your modes in the screen section of XF86Config
