Well, first a bit of introduction;
A long time ago, I got myself a laptop. A Toshiba Satellite 4090 no less
I replaced the 5 GB HDD with a 30 GB one, and upgraded its memory from 64 to 192 megabytes. However, its still a Celeron 400, so Windows XP ran like cr*p on it. In fact, I was supprised it ran at all.
Lately i've discovered the wonderful and magical world of Linux
and after trying a lot of distro's, and after a lot of trial and error, I managed to get Gentoo Linux running on my main PC. (from stage 1, I might add
However, since i'm going back to school soon (next week) and they have a reallly cool wireless network there, I decided to put the penguin in my laptop to get some more reasonable performance out of it. I first did a HD install of Knoppix, which ran pretty well. However, I recently came accross BeatrIX, a new Linux Live-cd, which claims to run well on any PC build in the last 10 years. I gave it a try and, indeed, it was pretty fast. HOWEVER, and this is where my question comes in, I couldn't get the screen to any resolution other than 640x480, while Knoppix works perfectly @ 1024x768.
According to Knoppix, the VGA controller is a Trident Cyber 9525
Is there anything I can do to get BeatrIX to work with my videocard/monitor, without first installing it to HD first?
Thanks in advance!
