Switching to LCD?

i am considering purchasing an LCD screen to replace my 17" CRT. Sy OS is Suse 9.1 Professional. Are there any precautions i need to take before switching monitors? The reason i ask, i have heard some people swapped, and weren't able to view their screen properly. I know you can go into Yast and configure the new monitor, but if you cant see all the screen or something, are you just out of luck?

Please advise.

My daughter is using Fedora and switching to a flat screen was no problem at all. It just plain works.
