XFree86 Resolution

I've been struggling with X setup in slackware for a little bit. I've been trying to edit my XF86Config to support a higher resoltuion, but even forcing only one mid/high resolution... I have a GForce 4 mx w/64mb. What keystrokes toggle through the reoslution ?ctrl+alt+(+/-) ???

Thanks a bunch,

Those are the keystrokes to cycle through the resolutions that X knows about. There needs to be more than one resolution defined in the ``Modes'' line of the ``Screen'' section of /etc/X11/XF86Config. If not, you'll think that the Ctrl-Alt-+ isn't working when it actually is.

"Modes" has to go under each "Display" doesn't it? When I cycle through using the keystroke i don't get the larger displays that are indicated in my XF86Config, but 640x480 and then something much smaller ...

I have a number of conservative res. in the config at differnt color depths... The phenomenia occurs with or without a DefaultDepth set ...

*sigh* I have no clue ... :O(
