My graphics resolution is extremely poor when I start KDE.

This is my first time installing and using Linux so I know very little.
I tried to configure the XF86Config file but at the graphics card section my
DIAMOND Viper II card is not there. So I picked undetermined and the
Server I thought was right was the VGA16 . I also tried to configure it manually
by putting my video card Monitor info in.

Please help
Thanks, Gary V

This is my hardware/software profile:

LINUX MANDRAKE 6.5, LINUX KERNEL 2.2.13, KDE1.1.2, XFREE3.3.5

VIDEO CARD: DIAMOND VIPER II 200
CHIP:                 S3 SAVAGE 2000
RAM:                 32 MB
RAMDAC:        UP TO 350 MHz
SERVER:           ?

MONITOR: NOKIA 447L
H SYNC: 31 KHz TO 64KHz
V SYNC: 48Hz TO 100Hz
RES. : 1024X768  LINE FREQUENCY KHz 61.10
                          PICTURE FREQUENCY KHz 75.8

It should work if you change the sever to SVGA, and set the moniter to the res you want it.
