Ok, I posted the thread below about the Dell 8200 and Redhat9.
Good news: I figured out the problem on my own.
Bad News: I made the resoloution to high; now I cannot see anything on the screen, cant logon or anything.
Is there anyway to change the resoloution in text mode. I had it running nearly full screen and then decided to krank the res up to see what she could do, and now it is completely blank. Cant log into change it. HELP, IM AN IDIOT!
Get to the console, login as root.
and try this command:
pico -w /etc/X11/XF86Config
if successful it should display your X11 configuration file. Now hit CTRL+W and type this into the prompt: SubSection "Display"
now that should take you down to where X11 has your screen resolutions defined. For me I have this:
Now hit CTRL+O and hit enter key to write the file. Now hit CTRL+X to quit Pico. Now either you reboot the machine or just log out of root and login as your normal user and then do: startx
That should do it and if not repeat as needed to remove any high resolutions your card will do but your monitor won't accept. I hope this helps you. :)
Edit: In the example given by TRON21Net the virtual screen resolution would be 1024x768, but actual resolution would switch between 1024x768, 800x600 and 640x480 every time you press those keys.
