Hi all. I just bought a scrappy little Linux system that came with Mandrake. Anyway, after bootup, it doesn't seem possible to up the resolution at all. It might not even be 640, it could be 320! I'm not sure. So the question I humbly ask your assistance with is:

1. How do I find out exactly what resolution I'm currently running at, including color depth, etc?
2. How do I change those settings so that I can get to at least 800x600, or greater?

I've tried looking in the /etc/X11/XF86Config and changing all the Modes in Screen Section to "640x480" and "800x"600" and then hitting Ctrl - +... but nothing happens! :(

Thanks in advance for helping out a newbie who's trying to expand beyond the MS Empire. :D
