Linux box update

The PC I'm using for this is a Packard Bell, 2.9ghz with 512mb RAM.

Ubuntu installation went pretty well, and I managed to find the network hard disk and network printer fairly easily - ran into some problems the first time I tried getting the printer to work, but when I deleted the driver and installed it again it was fine.

The only problem so far is that it doesn't automatically detect what the monitor is (a Compaq 1520 that can be rotated) and I can't seem to find a way to tell it manually, and it won't allow screen rotation.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Later Seems to be a Silicon Integrated Systems graphics chip set, if that helps.
