Lower resolution on 9.1?


As a rather desperate newbie (installed my first Linux two days ago....) I am having problem with extremely small characters (high resolution?) in 9.1. I am running a Dell i82k. I have tried to reduce resolution (as this normally helps in Windows) but this only has the result of the whole image reducing in size and leaving much of the screen unused.

Any tips?

Hi there.
From a shell as root run XFdrake (exactly as typed) or goto Kmenu->Configuration->Mandrake Control Center->Hardware->Change Your Screen Resolution.
In both instances you get a freindly GUI and the chance to test the setup so if it isn't right first time you can try other settings.

Hope that is of some use, Bash_Tin.
