    im assuming redhat 8?

    Try using the display manager under X windows to probe for your monitor/video card type

    also, try going to ati's site and downloading their drivers

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.

    generic displays

    i have tried using red had on my compaq presario 700, which is somewhat similar. the best monitor to choose is the Generic high frequecy SVGA 1024x768 at 70 Hz. a big problem you might find that you have is that if your laptop is acpi based linux will not work quite right with your power management.
