NVideo GeForce4 440

I was all excited when I read about the release of Ubuntu distro, not only
is the name African but also sponsored by a great South African Mark
Shattleworth. Features like Linux 2.6, gnome 2.8 and many others. I have
been following the progress of numerous open source projects through the
years and I am real keen to migrate to Linux from Microsoft. I have done
numerous case study migrations over the years but every time it just not see
feasible to make the switch. I am yet to install a distribution without any
headaches or any manual tweaking and although I know that this is a
pre-release my excitement was quickly quenched when it failed to pick up my
monitor settings and I am stuck in 640X480 mode within gnome on my Dell
Inspiron 8200 Laptop with a 15" monitor and NVidia GeForce4 440 video card.
Anybody else experiencing this after installation? Any help would be much




Just a closing thought:


If I, a computer literal and experienced developer can not migrate
successful to Linux, how do we expect any home/small office desktop users to
do the same?
