Unhappy SuSE 8.2 screen problems

I installed SuSE Linux 8.2 a couple of days ago (The FTP download version) but my screen is acting weird, It's like a magnification function, the part of the screen I see is 640x480 but my resolution is 1024x768, I can move around when I move my mouse to the corners of the screen. There are no virtual resolutions installed and I use KDE 3.1.1, also I can't use Hardware Acceleration with my Radeon 9700Pro, it worked when I had my Nvidia Geforce 3...
also, how can I get my second screen to work? Dualhead option says I need two cards...

There's a Util with KDE3 called "KMagnifier" you may want to check in YaST2 that you havent got this installed...

Hope that helps
