I downloaded XPostFacto 2.1 and everything went fine with installing Mac OS X....almost....
It's a very anoying problem...
When I restart using the disk where I've installed OS X the monitor, for
some reason, changes the resolution to 640*480. And this means trubbel when I get to the "Welcome" window where you are supposed to do all the pre-settings for Mac OS X. The window is larger than the screen res. so I can't reach the Continue button! The mouse wount go out-of-screen either, so I can't take a change and click to hit it either.
The only sullotion I can see to this problem is if I somehow can trick
Mac OS X into that I've already made the Welcome-settings, so that I can reach the OS X desktop, and from there, change the resolution. A
sulltion would be if someone can send me the files wich are written by the Welcome-setting app (if you know wich one(s)).

or does anybody know any other way to fix this?
