I am running bsd 5.2.1 and I installed the nvidia driver from the ports for the
follwoing video card.


nvidia0: <GeForce2 MX 100/200> mem 0xc0000000-0xc7ffffff,0xce000000-0xceffffff
irq 5 at device 0.0 on pci1

pciconf results:

 class=0x030000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x011110de rev=0xb2 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
    device   = 'GeForce2 MX 100/200 (DDR) [NV11DDR]'
    class    = display
    subclass = VGA

The installation went good, the card was recognized. The problem is the
resolution doesn't get to my desired setting.


Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Monitor0"
    VendorName "SUN"
    ModelName "574"
    HorizSync 30-70
    VertRefresh 50-120
    Option "DPMS"


Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Card0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth 24

    SubSection "Display"
        Depth 24
        Modes "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

Above are my XF86Config settings but all I get is a resolution of 640x480. Is
there a way to get a higher resolution with this card?
