How to change / set screen resolution during boot
I have recently started using Linux. I am currently configuring a copy of Damn Small Linux on my old, old laptop to give it a new life as a MP3 player for the car.
There seems to be a troublesome quirk during startup where LILO (or Linux) thinks the screen is 1024x768 instead of the physical 800x600 of the LCD screen. Once in X, the Window Manager handles the screen resolution correctly.
Is there a way to correct the screen resolution during boot / startup? This helps with the occasional error messages that appear on the "invisible" part of my screen awaiting response.
I've read that DSL is a stripped down version of Debian. Oh, my old, old laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro 420CDT (100 Mhz! w /48 Mb!! / 2G HD)
Thanks in advance!
