Xubuntu - desktop too wide, doesn't fit screen.
 
I installed Xubuntu (Ubuntu 5.10 with Xfce 4.2.0) and the desktop is too wide, when I move the mouse to the sides it scrolls. I'm using the same resolution and refresh rates as I've used in the past and it's worked fine then. So I have no idea what might be wrong, any ideas?

Have you installed the proprietary ATI drivers? You wont get to the higher resolutions without them.
