How to display on an analog TV

I have a 12 years old ASUS laptop that i use to play movies on a TV as old as the laptop.
The only distro i found so far that works and displays in the TV is puppy, which i am using.
I just installed Waldorf on it, which works better, but it keeps defaulting to the LCD screen and i found no way to make it default to the composite video output, regardless of the function keys in the laptop.
If anyone could tell me how to do it, i would appreciate it, because Waldorf actually works better on that laptop.
»»»» to admin: sorry, i posted this in the wrong place, could you move it to waldorf issues? ««««

Re: How to display on an analog TV

Does the bios have any options to select the vid output?

No, the BIOS has nothing abouty it. There is a function key to toggle between the LCD screen and the composite video output.
However, after it is set to composite video and after it displays correctly the grub panel in the tv, it comes back to the LCD screen when xorg is started.
On puppy (which is the only distro i managed to make it work), i set it to CRT display, 640x480 and it works perfectly,
