I have Puppy running on my 32bit duel core sata box with one small problem:
When it boots it does not fill the screen (19' Phillips)but I get a more or less square picture and printing a bit hard to read.If I leave it and the system goes in to standby then when i awaken it all is good and the screen is as should be.
In XP the resolution is 1440x900 but no matter what resolution I try in Puppy it is the same until it "sleeps and wakes up"

Id post on the puppy linux forum or check in on the irc
There might be something not quite right in the config files

What graphics card?
Are you running xorg or xvesa?

Have you tried using the graphics configuration tool to change the resolution?

Thanks Dave and Agent24.Problem fixed,I swapped to xversa even tho diagnotics said No Good for graphics card and there were other warnings about being wary of xversa.All is now 100%
