Question Lindows Monitor Compatibility

I recently ordered a Lindows webstation, and before it comes, I'd like to know if I can use my current monitor, a Compaq Presario V410e, or I'd need to buy a new one. Which ones would work, I heard almost any new CVT 15" or higher. I don't have much money to spend, so what would be cheapest?

I would assume so, it really depends on what resolutions and color depths your monitor can display and what is the minimum requirement for Lindows, you can check both on their respective websites but it might take a while to dig-up something on your monitor, try doing a Google search with the model/make.

Thanks. Hopefully, since I think it's a 13", I'll have no problems. Otherwise, I'll have to do a quick trade-off with my 17" monitor on my other computer.
