I have tried i915linux.tar.bz2 and i810linux.tar.bz2 from www.intel.com

 

I tried the 855resolution patch (version 1,2 and 3) from Alain Poirier

 

I tried a modified 1280patch based on 855resolution

 

knoppix/slax livecds only give 800x600

 

can anyone help me get 1024x768 on this , i'm stuck in XP until I do.

 

thanks 

mark
