You don't need to reinstall to change your resolution. When you boot up, boot into terminal rather than GUI (I think you enter "3" in the boot options?...not sure, I just boot into 3 by default).
From here, log in as root and run "sax2"...it will allow you to change your resolution to 800x600

sorry...just realized you said suse6.3...sax2 is probably not there. You might try sax or yast instead.

I've normally gotten the Pro version as I think from memory there used to be a difference in the manuals/cd's, and support supplied???

I know it's not tree-friendly, but I still think nothing beats a hard-copy when trying to learn or get a system up and running!

Check suse.com or lsl.com.au to hopefully get more info on what is supplied with the packs, (I am not affiliated by the way!).

cheers,
aarggh
