Hi, I posted this in the Portable section of this forum but there wasn't much in the way of assistance. I hope I can get more here.
I have a Compaq 1700 Armada notebook. It is a 300Mhz with 160Meg ram. I have loaded 5.8 std-GOLD onto it. I have a couple of issues that are preventing me from experiencing the full scope of pleasures that VL can provide. The major one being that the amount of desktop is severely reduced from what it should be. The notebook has a 13.3" screen but the used area is more like 10". the graphics hardware is as far as I can tell a C&T 68554 PCI with 16 bit colour support. It has 2 MB EDO ram.
Can anyone help me in expanding the viewable area of my notebook? I am relatively new to linux so if I need to do any compiling, the more detailed the better.
