Yes, the resolution I get without adding anything to the original 
installation is 1024x768 while the manufacturer's spec is 1680x1050. As 
it stands the browser is easy to read  but scrolls off the screen. If it 
was user selectable I would set it a little bit higher.

I have three monitors connected to three F-18 computers all of which 
work well except this monitor [ViewSonic VX2035WM] is not recognized and 
gets a generic driver, hence the reason for this exercise.
