Radeon 9100 changing picture position

I have recently installed the Radeon drivers for my 9100 (From the ATI site) it was much easier than trying to dri running with the driver that came with xfree86 (which I couldnīt do!) and it even setup my wheel button on my mouse!

But, at 800x600 resolution the picture is to one side of the screen its ok at 1024x768 and I donīt know how I can move the picture... (short of pulling the monitor appart and adjusting it inside) I would have it at 1024x768 but I have a 14inch monitor and its a bit hard on the eyes

I know I really need to get a bigger monitor but for now... what can I do for now!

I think just about every monitor has external controls on it - either on the front or back? You should be able to use these to adjust the horizontal position.
If you don't have these external controls I would run fglrxconfig (as root) again and set 800x600 as your primary display resolution. Make sure that you specify the correct horizontal sync and vertical refresh rates for your monitor.

No my monitor doesnīt have external controls and I have done the fglrxconfig and everything seems to be set right... any more ideas?

I am also having a problem with running Xawtv it says that there is no DRM... I think its drm I will have to get back to confirm this... and only brings up a blank (black) tv window
