      I have gotten my screen so that it is in the correct 1600x1200 res. And
      everything works great. I then added the line vga=normal to the kernel
      at startup and my consoles work fine. However is there a way I can get a
      better resolution on the consoles perhaps using a generic driver just
      for the consoles and still use the ati driver for the desktop?

      At work in windows I use two screens my lcd and an attached monitor
      however I am not able to do this is suse. Under multihead it won't let
      me do anything. How can I setup my monitor to work as a second desktop
      in suse?

      Are you using LILO or grub for your boot loader? /etc/lilo.conf should have numerous commented-out lines of resolutions along with their descriptions. Try

Try switching from vga=normal to vga=771 ( I THINK!!! ) which would give you a 1024x768x32 console. Note that you'll have to reinstall lilo if this is the case (just run 'lilo' as root)

        If you're using grub, I have no idea. :/ I use Slackware, which doesn't support grub, and that's just fine by me :)
