Unhappy Dell 600m and SusE9.1 Display problems

I installed SuSe 9.1 on my 600m laptop making it dual boot with Windows. I am a novice with Linux. The first thing I encountered is that the SusE instal only used a generic driver for my 600m laptop. The resolution is only 640 * 480. Any other resolution fails and I cannot view my screen properly.

Does anyoine know where I can get the drivers and how to install them or has anyone else experienced the same problem. Thats the problem with us Windows users. We need the GUI probably more than the ommand line.
