    Screen Size


    I booted knoppix on an old toshiba laptop, and the screen isn't full. Knoppix is only displayed on the center 60% of the screen. Is it because of the video card, or do I need to change a setting?

    You'll probably need to experiment with some of the cheat codes available through the F-keys just before the CD boots. Look especially close at the keys having to do with video settings such as screen, hsync and vsync.
