screen screwed up only mouse displays correctly

I set my resolution to 1152x870 85mhz (Sony 17 sf 200, Radeon 9000 64MB). after my system rebooted, I get this screen with black horizontal lines and the screen at an angle. How do I fix this without a reinstall? I select ATI for the X Server since that's what my video card is.

I am running on an MDD Dual 1.25GHZ.


Once I have this running I will write a very detailed article for those other Mac users. I couldn't get debian 3.0 to even boot, so I had to use 3.1.

Thanks all.

first i would try 1152x864, that is probably what is wrong, if that doesnt work, try 1024x768. you might want to lower the refresh too, try 75hz or something lower than what you have set.

i would also see about getting ati drivers from ati. that might help also
