counter strike in full screen


Hi
I can play counter strike fine in a window in X but if I change to full screen under video modes it crashes with an error no matching mode found. I tried to switch to full screen using alt ctrl + but I can't see the text at the top and bottom of the screen i.e. team scores and view player menus. Is there any way to run cs in full screen?
Thanks
sub

wine hl.exe -- hl.exe -console -game cstrike -w 1280 -windowed -noipx -toconsole +connect $8

thats the command i use, which i wont' get into the $8 because it deals with the launcher i use to launch the game....anyways you will just replace $8 with the server ip address, and also since you don't want it in a window just remove the line -windowed..so for something your looking for your command could be something like the following:
wine hl.exe -- hl.exe -console -game cstrike -w 1280 -h 960 -toconsole +connect 1.2.3.4:27015
of course you will change -w 1280 to be your screen width and -h 960 to be your screen height, so for example if your currently used resolution is 1024x768 you will replace 1280 with 1024 and 960 with 768..enjoy!

Thanks DrOzz got it running nicely now. Out of interest what launcher do you use for counter strike is there a good server browser you would recommend?
Cheers
