I've just installed 7.04 on a similar one-year-old Dimension 5150 with 
nVidia card driving a 17" Dell monitor that prefers a resolution of 1280 
x 1024.  But Fiesty will only offer max 1024 x 768.  This is the same as 
it gives me with a 15" Hanns.G monitor via a Radeon 9000 card on an 
ancient Compaq AMD Athlon machine.

Any suggestions for improvement would be most welcome!  (Though, to be 
honest, at my age, 1024 x 768 is probably easier for my biological 
optical system to resolve!!!)
