refresh rate asus n6200


I'm a newbie and I just install Fedora 7.

I used this link to install driver for nvidia for my asus n6200


su -
yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
nvidia-config-display enable
service nvidia restart
First problem is that if I do system-config-display the maximum resolution that I have is 1280x1024, unknow monitor and unknow graphic card.

Second, when I boot I can see the nvidia logo, but how I know if is correctly install and if it is this driver that is running right now.

Third, the only way I know right now to change my monitor refresh rate is to go to Configure desktop > Display > refresh rate. But the problem is that I only have 50hz. How can I change and add more rate?

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Fedora displays the wrong refresh rates and can not be trusted , to check the proper refresh either check the nvidia control panel ( found in the menu ) or the menu on the monitor itself should be able to confirm the true refresh rate.
