i just installed mandrake 8.2 on another machine, and im having issues with the appearance... especially the screen resolution. is there a way to change the resolution? its currently at 800 by 640 (im pretty sure) and not all of the desktop is fitting properly. i need to change it, but cant find a way.

also, is there a way to change from KDE to gnome?


i figured out the resolution thing, and how to switch between enviornments. i tried to switch to gnome but for some reason it wouldnt switch it. im still in KDE, yet on the mandrake configurater it says gnome..

At login (I'm guessing Mandrake uses KDM graphical login?), there should be an option named sessions, click it and select Gnome and it will start gnome for you.
