Display problem on Dell Inspiron 1100

Hi there,
I installed SuSe 9.2 on Dell Inspiron 1100. After installation, I found that the display size of laptop is not full screen. I experienced the same problem while installing Windows XP; but on installaing an add-on driver (provided by Dell), the problem was fixed.

Owners manual says that laptop supports 1028x768 resoluation. Anybody know how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried a slightly newer SuSE (9.3 or 10) that might have updated drivers?
