         I just got HP compaq nw8440, which as this wide screen display

tried installing ubuntu, debian etch and knoppix, all of them run at
1024x768 resolution, which looks pretty odd with strectched look (the
screen is not 4:3, its wide screen 16:9). i have tried manually editing
xorg.conf but didnt help, i also tried ATI's own properietory driveres
but then the X wont start only with no errors.

anyone has able to use that graphic card with the resolution i am
talking about?

What did you do with xorg.conf? What wm/desktop environment do you use? In gnome you can set resolution in Desktop/Preferences/Screen Resolution, and as i remember, there is similar option in KDE. But you must also include the resolution in xorg.conf, like this

Section "Screen"
   DefaultDepth    24
   SubSection "Display"
       Depth       24
       Modes       "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600"
