SuSE LiveEval incorrect display mode

I just downloaded the SuSE 9.0 Live-Eval CD. Booted off it, and YaST went smooth as glass...didn't ask me anything! Then when X started I'm presented with just a black screen. I thought this was X, so I switched to a text terminal, and sure enough I'm at the login. I login, and run yast, and it detected my display as 1600x1200 @ 75Hz. My native LCD resolution is 1400x1050. So I go to change, and YaST starts up X again and I am at a black screen again. Is there any way to have YaST confirm my hardwar during inital setup, or change to 1400x1050 @ 60 Hz after setup? If not guess I'll have to go back to using the 8.2 Live Eval....
