Stuck in 640x480 on upgrade

"the solution was decrease the DefaultDepth to 16 instead of 24."

I had a similar problem on a Compaq Armada 1700 and could not get
higher than 800x600.  I changed the above setting in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
to 16, rebooted, and now 1024x768 displays just fine.

Thanks for the help...

(BTW, the full Ubuntu install with Gnome is running better for me on
this old latop than the Knoppix install I did a few days ago.)
