I am going to install Ubuntu on my brother's PC (if I can get this small problem solved that is) because he is getting sick of Vista.. especially after he saw Compiz and how much faster and better than the Vista effects it is. The problem is that when I booted the live CD the largest resolution available was 800x600... not good... especially since he does 3D graphics (with Blender, so he's covered as far as software goes.) His card is NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE and I'm sure the problem is a simple fix, but I've never really had to mess with graphics cards... they've always just worked. I'm assuming the driver just needs to be installed. How should I fix it? It's preferable that I can get Compiz working. Thanks a lot!

Forgot to say that the computer is an HP Slimline s3123w. Thanks again! :)
