    The ati drivers are a bit difficult to install under linux /i had ati radeon 9550/. are u installing the latest drivers? check ati site for instructions /if any/ on new drivers for linux

    Yes,I tried the latest drivers.I could do without fast 3d graphics ,but I need to change the screen resolution to a higher value than 800x600.

    Is there an other way than installing new drivers to do it?

    Did you try xorg.config file? (in /etc/X11/ dir)
