    Default Sony Vaio VGN-AR71M + BT3 Final USB

    Hey guys,
    i am new to this linux distro, and i am using a Sony Vaio VGN-AR71M and trying to boot BT3 from a 4GB USB Pen Drive. The problem i am having at the moment is that X11 cant find a suitible monitor specification for the monitor i have. I have tried the command to automatically create the config and it still didnt work!

    I have found out that i need to find out the virtical and horizontal rates, but i cant find them in a manuals anywhere!

    Here is some basic information:
    resolution: 1440x900
    refresh rate: 60htz
    gfx card: 8400M 256MB

    is there anyway i can get this sorted. Its the X11 not finding a compatible display setting. I can run it in VMWare if i need to run linux to be able to find out anything.

    freakz

    Simply add the ati.lzm to the /modules directory on your stick.
    Can't lookup the correct path atm , i'm at work.
    Hope you get it done.

    And thx :P
