I'm new to linux and I've just installed ubuntu.
My pc is an old 166 mhz Pentium w/ 64Mb ram and 4.3g hard drive. The video adapter is S3 Virge-DX/GX PCI. The display resolution was 800X600 at 32 bit when it had Windows 98 installed, and it could go up to 1024X768 at a lower color depth (I think it was at 16 bit).
After I installed the ubuntu linux, screen resolution in Gnome will not go any higher than 640X480. I tried changing it within Gnome but there was no other option but 640X480.
I'm sure it could display higher than 640X480 unless Gnome is a lot more resource hungry than Windows 98? Any suggestions? Please help!
