Question RedHat 9 on DELL D800

I'm a new user of Redhat.These days,I try to install Redhat9 on my DELL D800,and I download the newest driver from here,and follow the README.TXT to install it. My display card is Geforce 4200 go.But when I finished,my Gnome can not run linux-xfree86-configrator again. (In it's START menu,it is named "Display Setting").And when I use old XF86config file,it can run OK.But it is no new card type in it,and I still not use it to change my screen setting.How can I do?

Hand edit the XF86Config file, in /etc/X11 to give yourself the screen modes you want.

You can use ctrl-alt-keypad+ and ctrl-alt-keypad- to change virtual resolutions, you do change screen res, but your desktop will remain the previous full size. If you want to really change the resolution of the desktop and monitor at once, you'll need to edit the config file. The gui tool does not function well with the nvidia driver from my experience.
