RedHat 9 with Widescreen Laptop

I have a sony vaio laptop with widescreen. When I install linux, I can't get it to be widescreen. I have mess with the XF86Config but I can't get it to show fullscreen. The desktop is correct but it still has the black lines on the sides.

Any suggestions?

Would have been helpful to konw the actual model in order to tell what res it should run in however try the following settings

Add the following lines to you XF86Config file:

        Modeline "1024x768" 65 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771 777 806 -hsync -vsync
        Modeline "1280x1024" 108 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync
        Modeline "1280x768" 108 1280 1328 1440 1688 768 771 777 806 +hsync -vsync
   


And change the Modes to include your new screen resolutions

        Modes       "1280x768" "1024x768" "800x600"
