A little Intro for the distro
I recently wanted to get into the Linux side and see what all the fuss is about. After what I have been reading about it, it was kind of too good to be true. I did some research and the one that caught my eye was Ubuntu linux. I fell in love with the screen shots and after I saw what you can do with Beryl and Compiz and all those other programs I thought "wow".
Anyways I have a Pentium 4 processor 524 w/Hyper-threading technology, 3.06GHZ, 533MHz FSB (front side bus), 1MB L2 Cache, 160GB Hard drive, 512MB DDR SDRAM, DVD+/-R Multi Format Double Layer Drive, ATI RADEON Xpress 200
Get to the point, whats the problem?
I downloaded the ubuntu 6.06 (dapper drake) desktop x86 .iso & also downloaded ubuntu 6.10 (edgy) desktop x86.iso and burned them both on dvd. Now I booted with (dapper drake) first and it would only display in 640x480 resolution. Don't worry I already tried going to System>Preferences>Screen Resolution. Theres only 640x480 I tried clicking, scrolling, hot keying, everything. Then I booted with 6.10(edgy) and it actually gave me two options: 800x600 and 640x480. So....? It's still not enough I want my 1024x768 resolution that I have on Windows XP MCE already installed on the hard drive I want to install Ubuntu on. So how can I fix this problem? Please help. Thanks in advance
