|Wow. I keep seeing more and more reasons not to use Dells. Non-working cd-drives, crippled bioses..|
The full X can use up to 128mb for the i830, so you would need XFree or Xorg to get more video ram.
XFree86 is in System (.dsl) or in Unc (.unc), Xorg72.uci is in Testing.
thanks i will try that (later) and let you know
Juanito: I am using the latest bios. Seems Dell never cared to change that.
Curaga: I absolutely LOVE my C400. It is 5 years old now so becomes a bit slow for latest XP and bells and whistles, (or for Ubuntu which dual boots here). Many other (newer) laptop that I tried frustrated me somhow, compared to my C400 ;-), (but of course they were faster too....)
Any suggestion for my Netgear WG511 wifi card ?
And any hint for my desktop empty screen ?? that one is weird too.
