Display adjust


I have a Yellow Dog Linux on my iMac.
The problem is, that I can't see the first two letters, because the screen is not adjustable (no left-right,up-down etc. buttons on iMac)
How to adjust the posision of the screen ?

Open a terminal, su to root, and type xvidtune - that should allow you to sort it out.
