Default Resolution problem..


I have an problem with my pc bsd 7.1 system I can't seem to change the resolution from 1024x768 to 640x480 I temporarily use an very old monitor for my second computer.. it can only handle 640x480.. I can barrerly see the screen so its very annoying and I really need to switch it down to 640x480.

I tried to edit the XF86Config with the kate editor using these commands in the terminal

kdesu kate /etc/X11/XF86Config

after that command I get an screen to type my root password.. I do so..
after that I get an error kdesu kate not found.

any ideas ?

thanks in advance.
