Unhappy install RH7.2 to laptop


Hi,

I want to install RH7.2 on my dell inspiron 8100. But don't know which monitor I should choose from the list and how high the resolution should be setup.

My laptop is 14.1 super XGA TFT1400x1050, and the dell company told me it was from HITACHI.

Anyone here could help me? Thanks a lot.

Hi,

my kernel is 2.4.7-10 on a i686, is this mean I should get

Thanks a lot.

Be careful with 2.4.7-10 !!

Upgrade as soon as you can to a newer kernel.
