I am not sure what the video is in a Dell C600, but what I have done now is connect to another newer workstation with an XJ700T MAG 
monitor and the connection is perfect. So, I think the problem was with the Dell laptop video controller.

Since this is a development mailing list, do you guys mind if I continue asking questions here? I do not see any traffic on the 
User's list, so I came here.

One question I do have is why netfilter was not compiled into the kernel for K12linux, or is it just missing from the LiveCD? I ask 
because I could not find any of the netfilter kernel modules like ipt_REJECT.ko, ip_tables.ko, ip_conntrack.ko, iptable_filter.ko, 
ipt_state, etc.

Also, how much trouble is it to take an existing server running RHEL 5 and build the K12linux system into it?
