Glad to hear you got everything working! Someone
is likely to mention to you that this forum (newbies@)
is more of a place for people to discuss their experiences
than to ask questions...the place for that it the questions@
However, I'll give you a hint. This is called a
'virtual desktop', and the size is set in your XFree86
Config file after the keyword "Virtual." But, I'll
also mention, it's the m/l *normal* way that XFree
runs a desktop. It could just be that that *other*
company made us get used to something different.
Have a great day,
