johan at Johan:~$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 
771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10)

johan at Johan:~$ xdpyinfo | grep dimensions
   dimensions:    1024x768 pixels (339x203 millimeters)

Ok, I did look into system-monitors and only 800x600 was available.
Remember this is a live CD x86_64.

Thanks
Johan
