It is very difficult to navigate in a window with that resolution. Could you give a specific location for the GNOME start button or a different approach to resolution correction?
On the GNOME desktop I can see 9 folders: one is the System Icon with 7 sub-folders;About Myself, Change Password, Control Panel, Disk Management, GnoRPM, LinuxConf, TimeTool.
Another is the Settings Icon with 9 sub-folders; GNOME Control, Desktop, Multimedia, Peripherals, Mime Types, URL Handlers, Lmlib Configuration, Default Editor, Menue Editor.
I find nothing an any folder about screen resolutions.
When I power up I go to a LILO boot, with three choices. Wait 5 sec for automatic (default) boot, or Linux<enter>, or Linus-up<enter>. All three give the same result--Wrong resolution.
In frustation I have tried to do a new install from scratch...Same results as my original posting. Instead of a few lines, this is the last page durring those attempts..

Maybe this will shed more light on my delima. I don't enjoy typing, I hope there is no errors. Should I just give in again?????
Please don't laugh at the next statement..
I have (from Scratch) built five computers. One each 3.1-win95-win98 and two winXP's and have had difficulty along the way. It was however enjoyable.
On each of these computers I made an attempt to install Linux..??? I almost hate PENGUINS.
I am tired of looking at (THE COMPLETE LINUX OPERATING SYSTEM 6.5) package sitting in my computer desk. If you think it is a lost cause just let me know, I'll give in one more time.., have close to 2wks on this last attempt but hate to give in.
Everything seems to works fine -- just can't see it.
