That is what I have. I got it out of the handbook. however I may have forgotten the quotes. I will try it tonight.
Now there are several duplicates of that section. Should I updated each one for each resolution and each color depth? Should there be only one? If I add one for each resolution and color depth combo is there a way to switch the resolution in the WM? Thanks for the input.
