Question Geforce 2 TI & linux mandrake 9.1

hello all,
i'm runnig mandrake 9.1 on Duron 1,1ghz, 128mb sdram and a geforce 2 ti 64mb.

i've downloaded the drivers for linux IA-32. i've successfully installed these drivers (i see nvidia logo before logging).
i have two problems : i can't get 1024*768, i must stay in 800*600. what's the problem ?

when i want to start tux racer, it starts but it crashes immediately
i think opengl is started because the vis plugins in xmms are too fast !

sorry for my english

Post the output of the command 'glxinfo'. This verifies whether openGL is actually loaded and available with acceleration.

Have you added the 800x600 resolution to your config in /etc/X11/XF86Config? If you could post this file, and the /var/log/XFree86.0.log, the problem might be shown in them. You can attach these files to the post, better than pasting them in.

XF86Config-4
XFree86.0.log

before i had a sis6326 8mo and the same screen. i could run 1024*768 declaring a "Dell SuperVGA Colour" to Xfree. but when i bought geforce2, declaring the same screen, i can run only 800*600.
i have absolutely no more informations about my screen (15")
