screen size?

During the monitor configuration after I specify 800x600 56hz. The instalation screens get really long so I cant see the bottom of them where ok and cancel would be. Any ideas? I couldnt get out of configuring my wireless card since I couldnt find the driver.

Your post is slightly incoherent. Did you manage to get your distro installed? After installation of Fedora Core 3, I managed to adjust my screen resolution by editing the xorg. conf file. I simply added the resolution I needed, 1024 x 768, to the "Modes" lines of the file. Other settings including the refresh rate can be altered with this file. Did you dual-boot your system with Windows? If so, and you're lacking info on what your screen settings should be, load Windows and browse your video settings to determine them.

I got it working and everythings fine. I guess the screens just messed up in the installation.
