Edit /etc/X11/XD86Config and look for virtual - it will probably
be larger than your screen size.

I have been trying to get my screen to run in 1024 mode but keep getting a
virtual screen. i am using a matrox Mystique and a SAMPO AlphaScan 511
monitor. Being a newbie to Linux, I have tried the Xconfigurator 4 or 5
times now and am getting different resolutions etc but all on a virtual
desktop, How can I have 1024 without scrolling the screen? I have tried the
virtual desktop setting in Xconfigurator but it doesn't seem to have any
effect. This is probably a user interface problem :)

Thanks for any help given

Thank you, this worked *and* I learned something about emacs, files and
XF86Config (must be different filename in RH5.2)
