I've got a newbie question about screen resolution.
After my decent computer had died I got an old machine from a friend.
I decided to try Mint Linux 3.0 XFce. I like it a lot but I hate the screen resolution.
The desktop settings in my XFce show the available options:
Before, with the old computer I had better resolution. What does it depend on?
It's it the graphic card? If it is the graphic card, how do I determine what I'm running at the moment.
The only thing I know about the current machine is that it's got the 733 MHz processor and I'm running 384MB RAM memory.

There is a tool in xfce to change screen resolution - don't know where and what it might be called as my xfce install is screwed up at the moment - probably because the installation of Cassandra KDE I just made screwed up the UUID of my partitions
Otherwise you have to edit xorg.conf - lots of posts about that, but I hope you don't have to do it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
