If you're using KDE in Mandrake, a straighforward way is to:

KDE COntrol Centre
Peripherals
Display

then change the "Screen size" to what you want.

then checkbox

Apply settings on KDE startup.

or alternately - use the Mandrake Control Centre

Hardware
Screen resolution

or alternately change the resolution settings in:

/etc/X11/XF86Config-4
