Question Compaq Presario 705EA Graphics under RH9

I just installed RH9 on my Compaq presario 705EA notebook, but my graphics are only 800x600 (which looks very bad on a TFT with 1024x768 resolution). I can not select any resolution higher than 800x600.

Anything worked fine on RH8, so I suppose it should work as well on RH9.

The graphics card is a S3 Twister K (using the savage driver).
I alyready tried to use the savage driver from S3, but that screwed up my X-Window.

Anyone a solution?

(P.S.: I am a linux newbie, please keep it as simple as possible)

Solved it

Me again.

After searching a bit more, I could solve my problem by changing the screen settings (not the graphics adapter).
