(FC5) ATI+x86_64+low-resolution=maddening

Hi guys,

This low resolution (800x640) is driving me crazy. I can't get the ATI driver because the livna-testing thing won't work for x86_64. I have a ATI Radeon 850 XL

Is it at all possible to use some other driver to at least have a resolution of 1024x768 or higher? I tried substituting vesa for radeon, but that just gives me a black screen (that is: the horiz. or vert. freq is out of bounds so the display does not accept the signal).

In stead of " driver radeon" I inserted " driver vesa" in the xorg.conf.

Does anyone know what else I should change to get a higher resolution?
Or maybe use a different driver?

Also, I remember there used to be tools like "xprobe" or something, but I found none: have they been replaced with xorg version 7?
