    Lightbulb Enabling higher resolutions in Ubuntu

    Hi all
    I installed Hardy last night.
    I am realizing something that until now i didnt mind so much. Is about the resolution of my desktop.
    I have an acer wide 21'' screen, and a nVidia Geforce 8600 GT (512 Mb).
    I installed the drivers for this card that comes with ubuntu, the restricted ones.
    The thing that bothers me is that the system never lets me to choose a resolution bigger than 900 pixels height, resulting in really big icons and controls all over the screen.
    When i reboot to windows, i have a bigger resolution, that lets me have a lot of small windows all over the desktop. This means that both the graphic card and the screen, are able to display this bigger res.
    I am this kind of user that likes to have all icons and text/controls as small as possible . That makes me feel i have a bigger workspace.
    The Ubuntu resolution manager does not let me choose any bigger resolutions.....
    Can anyone tell me how can i enable higher resolutions for my machine?
    I would appreciate very much any help.

    Thanks! (And sorry for my english )
