Installed ATI drivers but low resolution

think I did get my ati drivers installed on FC1 ... finally. I ran the rpm file from "root" and walked through the setup and received no errors.

Now, my resolution is way too low - all my windows and apps over run the screen. How do I set my resolution on my ati radion 9800XT using KDE desktop/ Fedora Core 1.

I thought the set up guide in terminal said to use <control / alt / num+ or num -> but that does nothing.

I know the ATI drivers are installed right because in terminal I can type

and if it reads

OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc

then the ATI drivers are configured correctly according to the ATI install guide.

Just want to alter my resolution to something higher.

Thanks for any info

Are you sure you've tried using "fglrxconfig" to configure your display settings properly? Maybe your settings ARE incorrect... You might need to change your refresh rates and resolutions.

yes, I know I need to change my resolution- my question is how do you do that? My reolution is like 600x480 or something low like that.

I just want 1280 x 1024

There has to be a way to adjust your resolution some how in Fedora or temrinal...Anyone please?

It may be too easy to actually work, but just going to preferences and screen resolution is how u change res.
