    Screen resolution issues...

    I just installed Xubuntu 9.04 on an G3 iBook 500 256 RAM, and everything seems to be working well, except my screen resolution is stuck on 800x600. How can I adjust that?

    I am a linux idiot, so if you can walk me through it, I will be very grateful.

    What graphics card do you have? Type "lspci" in terminal and post the output.
