Debian Display on Virtual PC 2004


Hello,

I recently installed the testing Debian (Sarge) on Microsoft Virtual
PC 2004. I am new to linux and am still poking around.

I installed a base system and I installed x-window-system and gnome by
using the 'apt-get install ...'. When I startx, they display is VERY
wide and unviewable. I think it may have something to do with the
settings that i used when setting up x. Can anyone help? Thanks A LOT.
I would really liek this to work because Debian has been my fave
distro that I've tried. Thanks!

-Benny

Which driver are you using for X? IIRC Virtual PC emulates S3 Trio/64 something or rather.

i have set x up to use the S3 driver, but it is still not working...when setting up gnome, it asks for a horizontal refresh rate and a vertical one...im not sure what to put in those either
