missing screen resolution


My screen (a Formac 21') native resolution is 1600x1200 but (k)ubuntu 7.04 doesn't offer better than 1024x768. Do I have to go and fiddle with xorg.conf file or is there a way to get the system to probe better ?

Thanks

Thanks for the suggestion. Is it something that I can do before doing a hard disk install ?

Yes, but any changes you make will be lost at the next boot because the "livedisk CD" doesn't write to your HDD.
