Screen Resolution after boot without monitor

Hi, I've Ubuntu 5.10 installed on a old machine.

When I boot Ubuntu with the monitor turned off, the screen resolution is setted to 400 x 600 (or a lower resolution, I think)

How can I set a fixed resolution, independently of the monitor ?

Really thanks

Hi, I found a simple solution.

Simple run

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

this run a wizard to set video parameters

The most importan here is to turn off autodetect monitor, in this way the video resolution remain fixed.
