    I have installed Fedora 12 on my new 15" High Def Anti Glare MacBook Pro using Parallels. When Fedora runs, it runs in a small window in the center of the screen. I believe this is due to Fedora 12 not supporting the high def screen. Does anyone have a solution to this or know where I can find an appropriate driver? Instructions would also be useful. Thanks.

    Check Fedora's settings and see if you can change the resolution

    I don't know any specifics as I'm a VMware guy myself, but Parallels must have a support package for linux, as well as recommended settings for Xorg. I recommend you check Parallels' website to see if there are any articles or postings in their forums that are relevant to you. It should not matter what type of screen you're using or what resolution it has.
