Default Etch Desktop gives 640x480 resolution only

Ive installed The Perfect Desktop - Debian Etch (Debian 4.0) on a Dell Dimension E521, AMD64 Athlon, SATA HD.
The video adapter is NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE, the monitor is Dell E773p, H: 30KHz to 70KHz and V: 50Hz to 160Hz.
I have to issues: First, mouse frequently hangs and I have to reboot.
Second, on the xorg.conf file I see Modes 1152x864, 1024x768, 800x600 and 640x480 but when trying to change screen resolution, Ive got only a 640x 480 resolution and a 60 Hz refresh rate and theres no more options. Any help will be appreciated

I think you can install Nvidia drivers with Automatix. Have you tried that?
