Default Display manager in mandrake like in Windows

I will try to explain what I am looking for.

About a week ago I decided to swap to Linux. I am now running Mandrake 10.0 Comunity. Everything is ok. I`m reading documentation and learning command-line stuff. In two evenings I got my GeForce 4 drivers installed So here is what I want to know... is there equivalent display manager for GeForce like in Windows. Can I manage my screen`s brightnes contrast and color gamma in graphic(it`s called X?) screen just like in Windows? I`ve read about how to set anti-aliaisng adn filtering stuff in terminal... thats ok I think I wiil get on with it but haven`t find enything about screens look.

Hope you`ll understand my bad english

The 4620 driver has a nvidia panel, if you dont want to use the 4620 driver then use command
Code:
--extract-only
instead of running it and locate the nvidia-setting bin file.

Heres a shot of mine



The 4620 driver can be found HERE

I have installed a latest nvidia driver... that means I have to go back to older?
