Set resolution via c.m.d.

I would like to try Fedora 9 live but when I boot from the cd the desktop only shows in the upper left of monitor. I would like to be able to set the res. so it fills the screen and how to do it. thanks.

Hi andy6432668, Try the text mode install, then configure the video after the install is finished.
Good luck. ;-)

This _could_ also be caused by some BIOS-option not set correctly - though I have only seen this to affect text-mode not to be displayed full-screen. X always worked.
