setting resolution

ok. clean install of slackware 9.1.

my monitor should run resolution of 1400x1050 but only 10248x768 is shown in kde control panel settings

i dont know the make/model of this monitor and dont know any technical terms about monitors like refresh rates

how do i set this up for 1400x1050?

You could try the "user friendly" way ... log
out of KDE, shut-down X, run
as root ...
