can't get 1024x768 resolution


I just installed the 4191 nvidia drivers and then typed xfree86setup. It totally changed my XF86Config file. And now when I Ctrl Alt + I get only two resolutions. 640 x 480 and some gigantic one! This is my XF86Config file that I've pasted below. Should I just copy stuff from one of the posts on the board? I was able to search and find the config for my whell mouse and I pasted that into my config file, but this screen setting didn't even resemble any that have been posted.

Awesome! I first added the modes into the line, but it still wouldn't give me the desired res, I then added the vert and horz lines in the montitor part, and it worked.!! Thanks a ton!

Should I just remove that line?

As it is right now, I get a Nvidia splash screen when X starts up, then it goes into the KDE splash screen. And the graphics look awesome so far.

Just uncomment the line.

Btw: The 2-dimensional graphic quality of nvidia-chipset based cards is crap You need the 'nvidia' driver only, if you need OpenGL-support. If not, stay on the 'nv' driver. They're more stable and open source than the 'nvidia' module.
