Unhappy which driver for mx4000 on debian ?

If someone can help me.
I've got an nv mx4000 64mb agp graphic card on a linux debian system with an athlon 1800 processor.
My problem is that i've installed it yesterday and also installed debian but the maximum resolution that i can obtain is 800 x 600.
must i install a driver for my graphic card ?
(while i installed debian i've choosed nv for the graphic card).
I'm new in linux (it's the second day) and my written english is not very good but i understand it good !

This should go in the Linux forum below, Anyway the geforce4 is still supported by the nvidia Linux drivers. I do not know the debian way of doing it(im a gentoo user myself) but install the nvidia drivers through apt-get and edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf or if that isnt there /etc/X11/XFree86, look for a line in there that says Driver "nv" and change it to Driver "nvidia". It would probably be much more helpful to goto the #debian channel on irc.freenode.net, use xchat

Yes you do. It's in Nvidia's site under Linux OS, Duh!

As for installing it, that's another story. It's not as simple as double clicking a EXE file. There is an installation read me on the download site. It's an installation script that works on all linux distributions, so it's not that hard.

I recommend you get a linux book. It helps a lot with command line inputs and configuration. Most of the questions you have may be easily answered in the book. As for what book is good. I have no idea. I use Fedora Core 4
And i bought a book on Fedora Core that got great reader reviews from Amazon.com.

Just follow the instructions on Nvidia's site, and if you have problems refer to a Debian book. That's how you use linux.
