Laptop display config'd bad; screen fails (RH9)
I have just installed RedHat9 on my Toshibia Satellite 3005-S303 Laptop;
it's now dualboot with XP. I installed by FTP'ing from a mirror site, and I made a floppy rescue disk.
My problem is self-inflicted. It worked right after installation was over, except that the display didn't fill up my entire screen and the resolution was too low, so I made the resolution very high (too high) and then shut down (saving changes).
Now my display no longer works once RedHat gets passed everything that flies across my screen upon startup. I'm a newbie so I don't know how to interrupt the startup stuff and modify the configuration files before it gets into X and goes blank.
I have a clue as to how to modify the monitor configuration (something I found on the web), but I can't get a chance to use it, and I don't know how to get into it.
I have tried logging in as root (you gotta be pretty quick!) but that doesn't accomplish anything. I've tried booting from the rescue disk, but I don't know how to use it properly so it hasn't done anything for me.
I've been struggling with this for 4 hours now, any help would be wonderful.
