    Display is off-center for 2 OS's...


    It's multi-boot, with Ubuntu and XP on the native IDE channel. Those 2 display fine.

    The other 2 OS's, PCLOS and FC8 are on another disk, which is on a PCI/IDE controller card. If I boot either one of them, the display is off-center to the right, by the same amount - about 3/8".

    Since both are off equally, it has to be a BIOS setting - right? And not a X.conf setting?

    Well, it could be that your monitor is not calibrated properly! Maybe you're using a resolution that you don't normally...
    When I switch to an odd res/refresh rate, the screen can shift, I just use the monitor controls to put it back again!

    If I use the monitor controls for the 2 OS's that display INcorrectly, then won't that interfere with display for the 2 OS's that DO display correctly?

    The monitor controls are not dependent on the OS.

    If 2 people got sick after grubbin' down at McDonald's, you look at McDonald's; NOT the people.

    Well, it shouldn't... have a go. I've never screwed it up bad by doing that.
