Resolution Stuck at 640x480

Well, here's my problem:
I am running Slackware on a Intel box with an SiS 6326
I set up XFree86 using xf86config.  No matter how I set up the
resolution order, it always uses 640x480.  This limits my productivity
to null because I don't have much desktop space.  I am using KDE.  Any
ideas?

Well that was stupid of me.  I kept setting the refresh rate wrong.
Sorry for the clutter.
