video resolution with kde

I have this partially working now. In my xorg.conf file, I added HorizSync
31.5-82.5 and VertRefresh 50-90 in the "Monitor" section. In the "Screen"
section, I added DefaultDepth 24 and in the "Display" Subsection with Depth
24, I added Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Now the only resolution that works correctly is 1280x1024. This is much
better than the 640x480 that I had before, but I'd like to use 1024x768.
When I go into Configure Desktop and set the Display Screen Size to anything
other than 1280x1024, my screen gets disoriented. There is a break about
three quarters through the screen and part of the windows display on one
side and the rest displays on the other side of the break.
I can't find the correct VertRefresh and HorizSync settings on Dell's
website, so I've been messing with settings that I found that someone else
used on an older version of FreeBDS with XFree86. Would this problem be
caused by the VertRefresh? Any tips on what I can change?

I just installed FreeBSD 5.3 on my laptop (Dell Latitude D600) and set up
KDE 3.3. When I go into the desktop configuration, the only screen size I
have is 640x480. What do I need to do to get a higher resolution?
I believe the video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000, but I can't seem to
find FreeBSD drivers for it.
Sorry if I didn't include enough info here, I am very new to this.
