I just got HP compaq nw8440, which as this wide screen display
which runs at 1680x1050. the graphic card is ATI FireGL 5200. i have
tried installing ubuntu, debian etch and knoppix, all of them run at
1024x768 resolution, which looks pretty odd with strectched look (the
screen is not 4:3, its wide screen 16:9). i have tried manually editing
xorg.conf but didnt help, i also tried ATI's own properietory driveres
but then the X wont start only with no errors.
anyone has able to use that graphic card with the resolution i am
