i have a problem that linux will maximum let me use 1024x756 but i want 1280x1024, my card supports it, even under windows it can go up to 1600x1200.
i have the feeling that its just a driver i need but ati havent made one.

my card is: ATI Radeon 7200 or just the radeon family

Run Xwindow config and chose "Generic" type video card that should solve your problem.
The command to run the configurator is something like XConfigurator(depends on which linux version you are using).I had same problem and I was able to fix it(I am using RedHat9.0).
