9700Pro Driver and size of screen in suse?

Ok guys. I just got finished installing suse.. and it all looks like its running good.However, I cant get it to recognize that i have a 9700pro installed as my graphics card. It is putting it as a 8500.
One other thing. How do i resize my screen? Or will that be fixed when i install the driver for the 9700?

Thanks in advance!!! Adam

If you are using Suse then there is an app called Sax2 that you can use to reconfigure your graphics card and screen size/colour depth.

I think you can also do it via control centre.
