Cool! Congratulations!

...and "well done" to uunix, who nailed the solution!

thanks a lot for your help! Setting the console to g did indeed fix the problem. About the Monitor: It auto adjusted to 1280x1024 and scaled the picture to fill the screen from top to bottom with black bars on both sided. Looks quite good :D So I guess it's safe to say the DELL u2711 is compatible.

Now I need to get a compatible HD. I can't wait to play Quake on this little machine :)

I will send you a bootable 73 gig drive and O2 sled for the cost of shipping. Welcome to the forum and PM me your address. :D
If the thing isn't on fire it's a software problem.
