    HDD install, new lcd monitor

    I just purchased a new LCD monitor and when I boot from my HD it says "not supported". Yep, I tossed in the cd and was able to use framebuffer mode, and it worked but not very good. What would be the best way to optimize thes monitor and how do I modify my HDD install. Yes, I still can hook-up the old monitor as a temporary solution, but I would like to use the new one.

    On my compaq lcd, I use this cheatcode: vga-normal

    Try boot cd using this cheatcode or any other cheatcode. If it boots okay, then you can append that codes in lilo.

    I can try that. As I said, it works in framebuffer mode when I boot the live cd. Your suggestion may be more optimized, which is what i'm looking for. How do I modify lilo after I try this?

    JUst hook your old monitor and boot from hd.
    Edit /etc/lilo.conf and append the cheatcode, ex: fb1280x1024

    image=/boot/vmlinuz
    label="Linux"
    root=/dev/hdc5
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img
    append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi splash=silent acpi=ht fb1280x1044"
    read-only
    **This is not a real lilo.conf, I just made it up. The important part is "append="
    line where you add cheatcodes.

    After editing and save the lilo.conf , you need to update lilo.
    Open root konsole and run this command: lilo
