    fc5 + compaq nw8240 + resolution

    I am teaching myself linux. The dual-boot installation of fc5 done.

    Now the problems:

    1. Resolution is deadlocked as 640*480 or 800*600.

    2. Wireless is non-operational.

    Does anyone out there have any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    hi dami,

    Welcome to the LinuxForums.

    for settings up resolution:
    in GRUB screen, select Fedora title and press 'e'. select 'kernel' line, press 'e' again and add <space> 3 at the end of line. press 'Enter' key and press 'b' to boot up. this will drop you on command line login prompt. log in as root and execute this
    configure display and resolutions. in case your Monitor is not listed in Monitors List, select 'Generic' Monitor. execute 'startx' to check GUI.

    dont have much experience in Wireless. i hope someone will post suggestion for that soon.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
