I have installed RH 5.2, XFree86 3.3.3, and Matrox G200 8M SG RAM. When I start x windows, everything (like xterm, font, etc) are enlarged and I can only see a portion of the screen. Would someone tell me how to solve the problem?

Thanks!

switch through other resolutions using:

Ctrl+Alt+NumPadPlus

If you want to have another resolution as default edit /etc/XF66Config  (AFAIK Display scope in the Screen section)

I need more info. than that if I'm to help at all.  You need to supply more info.:

1.  Try capturing the "X" output by using this command line:
      %  startx > .startx.out 2>& 1 &
Note:  Your redirection might be different depending on the shell you're using.

2.  Show me your XF86Config file.
3.  Describe, in detail what program you used to set the card up and what options you chose.  If you've tried Xconfigurator and xf86config, also try XF86Setup....

Basically.... *more* info...
