WHen I try startx I get:
XI0: fatal Io error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server "0:0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

I have yet to change anything from its initial config. Why would this be happening?

Try running XFdrake from a command prompt and setting your monitor there. If not autodetected, select a generic with the resolution and refresh rate you want.

XFDrake won't start and gives that error?

Or that error appears when you try to restart X after changing the monitor type in XFDrake?

The only thing that comes to mind is that your X font server may be looking for 100dpi fonts to work at the resolution you chose. Set up yuor urpmi sources (if you have not already done so):
http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/

Install the 100dpi font pack:
urpmi xorg-x11-100dpi-fonts

Type kde or reboot and check if it works.
