    New install Screen Size Problem

    I just installed Knoppix on a Dell Inspiron 8100. The screen is currently set at 1024x768. My laptop screen is much bigger than this but the configure display option in the resize app only goes up to 1024x768. How do I change the configuration so the screen fills the LCD?

    Thanks

    when I do it, the screen resolution is set to that, but the image doesn't fill all the screen. I've tried using xvidtune, but I cant enlarge the screen. Any suggestion?

    the screen option is where you set the screen dimensions.
    it also ahs Virtual Desktop where you set the size of the viewable area.
