This is a good place to come for answers, but some people will not take the time to explain things. I was just dealing with the 640x480 problem tonight. In Suse 9.0, for example, when booting from cd, there is a list of options, like boot from hard drive, install, install without acpi, etc. At the bottom, it says something like F2 800x600. When I pressed F2, it popped up a menu to change to 640x480. Then I pressed enter, and enter again, to start the install. Does that help? BTW, I get my linux from linuxcd.org, but I don't have broadband. Don't buy the store boxes, they are really expensive just to try out linux.
