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!!!)
