1. Cirrus CL-GD5430/40 PCI with 1MB - how to do higher than 640x480?

I have the card mentioned and it seems to only do 640x48o with the virtual
desktop taking it to 800x600. I would like to get at least 800x600 on the
main part of the screen. Would adding the other 1mb to bring it to 2mb do

success so far. I just installed Linux a couple of days ago and would like
to get this sorted out before I progress on to getting the networking and
PPP sorted out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
