I have just installed Linux RedHat 9.0 on an emachines M5105 notebook
(set up as a dual boot machine with the already installed Windows XP).
The machine has a 15.4" widescreen display with 1280x800
resolution. The problem is that RH9 does not recognise the widescreen,
i.e. everything is stretched. I think it assumes my display has the
standard aspect ratio of 4/3. (It is fine under Windows.) Does anyone have
any suggestions/experience as to how I can get the correct aspect ratio,
i.e. things not stretched? There are no appropriate options available
under linux. I assume I have to modify the XF86Config file, but I am
unsure how. Or, in the worst case, is there a way in which I can get
the normal aspect ratio of 4/3 (e.g. 1024x768) by including black
stripes at the sides?

I forgot to mention that the graphics card on the M5105 is an Intel 852 (Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME)
with i810 driver and 64 MB.
