I have Ubuntu 8.10, newly installed. My screen resolution is limited to 800x600. I'm assuming this must be the max resolution for generic drivers. I have a driver disk with Via drivers on it for my motherboard, but have no clue how to get this installed.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for doing this?

Thanks

Have you installed Hardware Drivers?

It's the onboard video that is on the Via EPIA-M motherboard

So, is there no simple, straight-forward way to do this?
