Question Mandrake 9.0 Need some help

I just wiped my system where i used Red Hat 7.2 and decided to put Mandrake 9.0 on. I am trying to change my resolution and so I am trying to access XF86Config-4 but I keep getting access denied, and yes I am already logged in as root. Thanks alot guys for your time.

Wink XF896Config access denied

Why dont you just use your Control Centre, you can change your resolution and do most hardware related configuration from there?

I was testing the command myself and getting the error message but I am assuming (ass -u -me !) that you already have a desktop available?
