inspiron 4150 success, still need help

I have been dieing to put osx86 on this old inspiron 4150 for some time but didn't have a DVD player. I finally had an idea to steal a dvd drive out of another old crappy p3 laptop and patchwork it to install. Long story short and many coaster DVDs from the old drive not compatible and here I am on 10.4.6.


I have a single major problem I need help with. Is there some sort of overscan utility or way to move my screen down like 1 or 2 lines? The very bottom line flickers like it should be off the screen.


I am using 1280x1024 with the hacked radeon 7500 drivers using callisto. My native resolution is 1400x1050(i think 1050). I do not get QE enabled but without the driver the screen does not stretch to fit.


Any ideas how to move this bottom flickering line off the screen?
