i am new to this list. i recently installed linux 6.2 from PCquest(june)
CD. it installed properly as KDE workstation. but i am having problems
with my display card settings. I have a P1-166,16MB ram,8.4 HDD,a SiS(6215) video card with 1MB video ram.

U must be knowing that RH6.2 does not have support for SiS(6215) card. Maybe that the latest version of XFree86 has support for that card. I have not seen that. A simple solution to this problem is given in PCQuest March 2k on pg. no. 95. It explains a procedure whereby u could configure any video card with VESA2.0 support to work with linux. Take a look at it.

now when i boot into KDE desktop, all the icons,text,windows appear very big. i am able to see only about
40% of my desktop at a time. linux reported that it is using a 340x420
video mode. how do i get a normal desktop? how do i set my resolution
to atleast 640x480 mode. is this b'coz i have only 1MB video memory?
Please help. i want help desperately.


        I think this should solve ur problem.
