Default How to get 1280x800 with toshiba M30 and Red Hat 9

i found how to get the 1280x800 resolution on my Toshiba M30-154 !!!!

i installed the latest driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run)

the most important thing is to set the correct monitor section in the XF86Config

EndSection

if someone has the same computer and know some tricks
to get linux working. please reply, mail me, contact me.

i have problems with modem!
i don't know how to scale cpu frequency, manage battery
and so on....

(i also have problems with the english language cause i'm italian
so don't care about errors........)




i posted also the whole XF86Config that works well with
my RedHat 9 installation (remember that i use the italian keyboard).
I hope that it works with other distro.
