Question fullscreen after rh9 install

after installing rh9 on a dell inspiron 2650 notebook the default boot process is not full screen. (rather, the scrolling text part of the boot process is, but the logon and subsequent desktop are not) i have found that pressing Funct + F7 makes the display fullscreen, but is somewhat annoying. also, if i change virtual consoles, it is back to being "windowed." does anyone know a fix for this?

thanks in advance.


this wasn't replied to, but i found that simply increasing my screen resolution took care of the problem, just in case anyone else runs into this...
