I have tried and tried:mad: to install the Fedora live cd several times, several different CD's and downloads. I always get an "out of range" error on my monitor. I can press the ESC key during the beginning and get a boot menu. Is there a way to change the screen resolution (1440x900, 75) for the live CD?

Is there a way to change the screen resolution (1440x900, 75) for the live CD?
Do you mean for the "boot" of a LiveCD, or do you mean after a Live boot and then
during the "Install to Hard Disk" ?
Any other details ? . . . I might be able to help.

There are two simple ways to checkout whether the live cd is working or not. First, try
and download any other live cd like "PCLOS" :http://pclinuxos.com/?page_id=184. Run it and if you face the same problem, try to verify whether the .ISO image you downloaded onto your HDD was proper in every which way,thusly : http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Downloading_FAQ#Q:_What_are_these_strange_MD5_file s_that_accompany_the_ISO_CD_images.3F .
I personally found a torrent download was faster and better than from a mirror! If you are using Nero, then you can "Tick--VERIFY". One more point, isn't a DVD-RW save money in the long run? Just a thought! Best wishes.
