Nvidia drivers/correct display
Hi, I'm very new to Linux (used SuSE for a few weeks then switched to Ubuntu 6.06 because of performace issues), but I've got everything working so far with the use of online searching but can't get my display to work properly. With SuSE I installed Nvidia drivers from the nvidia website and everything worked fine, but with Ubuntu I'm a little confused.

I have no idea if the drivers are installed properly but I don't see anywhere where I can change the screen resolution to be higher and the display doesn't look any better
I have an Nvidia GeForce4 440 MX.
Sorry if it sounds confusing.
