Max Screen Res & Refresh Rate + Wireless Card

How can I change the max screen res (now 800x600) and screen resolution (now 73 Hz)?? I don't have an xorg.conf file in /etc/x11. Windows reports that my monitor supports up to 1200x800 (it's a widescreen laptop) and a refresh rate of 60 Hz, but it hasn't burst into flames yet.

Also, how can I get it to recognize my wireless card? It's built into the laptop, it's not pcmcia. Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3b Mini PCI Adapter.

I *think* I need this but I'm very new to Linux and I'm not sure how to go about this.

The network hardware section doesn't show any hardware other than eth0, my ethernet card. How can I install this driver and get my card to even be recognized as "there".

One more annoyance for you: which desktop environment do these screenshots use? I'm pretty sure it's KDE, but I'm not sure. How do they get those widgety things also like the calendar and CPU temp?

Thanks for your help,

Look at the screenshot again and scroll down until you see "Applications used in this screenshot".... also look up karamba or superkaramba and for some neat utilities
