Texas Instruments AM335x Starter Kit

Hello,

I have a TI AM335x starter kit, running Linux, that currently comes with a 4.3" LCD screen.  I would like to connect a 5" LCD screen to the kit, can someone tell me first if this is possible?  Second, if so what do I need to upgrade so that it will work?  I have just tried plugging in the 5" LCD, and it does show a few items on the screen, but nothing that is very clear, so I am thinking I must need to do some sort of software upgrade perhaps so that the screen is re-calibrated.  

Any assistance would be appreciated, as I am not sure where to turn next.

Regards,

From the documentation:
Capacitive Touch Screen
The Starter Kit comes with an additional, populated connector to accept a capacitive touch screen from New Haven.  This multi-touch (x4) display can easily replace the existing SK touchscreen to provide you with even more possibilities.  Please Note:  Software support for the TSC is not included in TI's SDKs.  For more information visit: newhavendisplay.com
