When I installed SuSE 9.2 on my Dell Inspiron 8600, the installation
program selected VESA rather than LCD for my monitor. I expect to connect
this computer to a large flat LCD screen, using the same card, through a
docking device.

I am a mite shell-shocked with respect to using Sax2 so I my question,
before I do anything is this: Would it be better to set the screen for
LCD rather than VESA? If Not, What alternative do I have with rspect to
the LCD screen to which I will attach the computer through the docking
