About X server

I have installed RedHat´s Linux 3.0.3 (Picasso) on my PC. Everything seems to be alright, but I´m having trouble choosing the right X server. (When I use the XF86 server, and startx, I get a 320x200 window.)

I ran X -probeonly, and it tells me it is using the SVGA built-in mode of 320x200. Naturally, I´d like to have greater resolution.

If anybody can point where I can find a server which will work for my configuration, I´d appreciate it.
I have a generic SVGA monitor. Under Windows 95, I use a Trident 9685/9680/9682/9385/9382/9385-1 driver, by Trident Microsystems, and have 2M of Video RAM.

I don´t know what further information anyone would need to help me, but do ask me if you need more.

For starters, get the newest X server possible.  I'd suggest upgrading to Redhat 5 or 4.2 if you don't like the glibc stuff.  Anyway, get the newest XF86 and corresponding server and it should solve all of your problems.
