    How do I change the available refresh settings?


    I just recently installed SW10, my first debut into the Linux arena. My video card is a 3DFX Voodoo 5 5500. For display settings, there are no options above 1024x768. That's OK since I have a 17" Monitor, but the only refresh setting it allows me is 60Hz, which is getting old real fast. I would like to run at 85Hz. Is there some config file I can edit somewhere to allow this option?

    Thanks for the help!
