Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Normally, if you run videoconfig (which is part of the post-install routine), it will detect your video card and replace the generic 'vesa' driver with the correct one (ati, nv, ...).
The screen resolution Zenwalk sets in the Xorg configuration depends on the info it gets from the monitor itself though... Normally. I for one have a 1280x800 screen which Zenwalk always sets at 1024x786. Nothing a good sed can't handle though
Sorry slow to answer but ISP having email and web problems. Sorted now.
My screen is on a laptop, 17" 'widescreen'. It's on an AJP (www.ajp.co.uk).
All sorted now, with a bit of editing of the config file.
man! a laptop with those settings? you must eat tons of carrots!! i can't stand anything over 1024x768, myself.
glad you got it figured out.
IIRC, carrots provide carotenoids which can be used to produce retinol. Retinol is used to produce rhodopsin, a pigment, which reacts to medium-wavelength visible light in a very exaggerated manner, and which is used by rod cells. Therefore, it makes it easier to see in low-light areas. Most LCD monitors are inhibit the working of rhodopsin by (relatively) high amounts of white light. Unless you have your brightness turned way down, you are in a dark area, you have relatively dark colors, and you have given your eyes a few minutes to adjust (perhaps going stargazing and using your Stellarium to help you), rhodopsin will not increase your perception of high resolutions on your monitor.
I.e., carrots increase your ability to discern monochromatic images in low-light environments (but not higher resolutions on your monitor).
