How to control screen size in Fedora
I have a desktop computer with Windows XP and a Compaq 1700T laptop wth Slackware 10.2. Recently, I replaced my desktop system with a barebones system which uses a ASUS A8S-X motherboard with a AMD Athlon 64 CPU and a Hitachi 160GB Serial ATA hard drive.
My first problem is that I could not install Slackware or freeBSD (which I like in that order) onto the barebones system because of a "Kernel panic: attemped to kill init!" error. Has anyone any idea why I can not put linux on my new hard drive?
My second problem is with Fedora 4. I also have an older Maxtor ATA hard drive on my desktop system. In the past, I have successfully installed Slackware 10.2 or freeBSD onto this Maxtor hard drive, but in each case had to spend a lot of time trying to get everything (email, browser, server and lan networking stuff) working -- mainly due to poor documentation and many people on the internet with the same problems but with zero or conflicting answers. My only problem (so far!) with Fedora is a trivial one. In trying to set up Evolution, the setup screen tells me to "click the forward button to continue"; however, the forward button does not exist or is behind the bottom KDE panel. How do I reduce the height of the Evolution setup screen so that the forward button is accessible?
