monitor resolution problem
Hi all,

I had to switch monitors on one of my systems running Suse 9.2 today. The old monitor ran at 1280x1024 I believe, or it might have been 1024x768. Either way, the backup monitor I put on it is a much older model that I think can only support 800x600.

Right now, when I bring up the system the monitor display is totally un-readable. It's compressed vertically and is constantly scrolling horizontally. However, if I bring it up in failsafe mode, it displays the command line just fine.

I won't have access to a larger, newer monitor for at least a week or two as it stands, so I want to try and change the resolution that KDE desiplays from the command line. Can anyone tell me what files I need to modify, and what I would need to set to display as 800x600? Other suggestions for trouble-shooting are also welcome ;)

Thanks in advance!
