i would say that your horizontal/vertical refresh rates for your monitor aren't set high enough... look up the rates for your monitor and make the changes to your x configuration file..

if you are using xorg you can run the xorg configuration tool, "xorgconfig", i'm not sure what it is for xfree, probably xfreeconfig or something like that..

Wow, it might have actually helped if I read the original post. :) Yeah, whichever X server you are using, the config for the resolution is in there; not KDE.

Cheers.

Well, actually, configuration file for KDE in Gentoo is XF86Config. Now I got that, when u execute XF86Config it asks you bunch of question about ur monitor, graphic card, mouse and keyboard. Before I used another command (don't remember where I got that and what command was that), which in turn configured everything automaticly and with low resolution, so I wanted to configure the XF86Config file manually. But now I used XF86Config that worked perfectly. Thanks for help.

Yeah XF86 is the other X environment; the other free X environment that is. Xorg is a new development that most *nix's seem to be migrating to.
It stands to reason that XF86config would have helped you.
Technically though, again, the configuration of X is not a configuration of the Window Manager. You establish your X (GUI) framework with X, then decide which Window Manager you want, (KDE, Gnome, FVWM, etc.)

Cheers, and glad you're up and running.
