Display area is too small!
I've tried everything I can think of, and I still have a good inch of black space all around the display area. Now I'm getting a nasty stripey pattern too.
My monitor is not a recognised model, so I've got it down as a Generic VGA. I have the max. resolution/refresh rate spec, and also a .cfg file from the manufacturer (does this contain any extra information? If so, what do I do with it?).
I edited the /etc/lilo.conf file to set VGA=795 (for 24-bit, 1280x1024 resolution), but this hasn't made any noticeable difference.
My graphics card is Nvidia Riva TNT2 model 64, if that's any help.
Anyone know how I can get a nice, smooth, full-screen display (like the one I have in, erm, Windows)?
