I just tried this but couldn't find the flgxr drivers so I tried the ati one instead. Chose a load of default options and voila. Then I went into the settings just to see if it'd allow me to change them. It did, great. I noticed the refresh rate was 75Hz so I set it back to 60Hz and restarted the xServer. Now my screen is WAAAAAYYYYY bigger than my monitor so everything is massive. The settings will only allow me to change between 1792x1344 and 640x480 so I guess I should reconfigure again. I just find it wierd that changing the refresh rate would do this.
Thanks for the help,
