I've been trying to edit my /etc/X11/XFConfig-4 file to configure my video card.

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "nVidia Corporation|NV10 [GeForce 256 DDR"
Monitor "HSL076D"
DefaultDepth 16
Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024*768"

The above works.

But if I change the Modes to "800*600" I get the same resolution as before, same thing happens if I change it to "640*480". However If I try to change the Depth to either 8 or 24 X wouldnt even start.

I must say I find this very strange, it doesnt seem like my video card and the config file are working togther.

Now I atleast get the Nvidia splash screen when I start X so I guess the new driver is installed.

Can someone please help me configure the correct resolution and color quality. This whole video driver thing has really been buging me for a while now.
