debian base install => xfree86config


hi i just installed latest debian base
got x-window-system
xserver-xfree86
gnome
fluxbox
with apt

i've got a rather simple problem ...
i did the xf86config in terminal as su
did everything normal there
set horizontal hrz as 1280*1024 @ 75 hz (highest i could choose)
vertical 50-90 hz (not shure if that is correct ...)
choose generic nvidia card (have a nvidia geforce 4 mx 440, normally works perfectly with basic xf86configuration) etcetc

when in gnome : if trying to change screen resolution , the highest resolution i can choose is 800*600 @ 85 hz

does anyone know how this can be ??
