I just installed Slackware 96 and XFree86.

The problem I'm having is with the placement of windows inside X. I run a Trident TVGA9000i w/512k, so with resolution of 800x600 I can't get a virtual terminal any higher than 800x600. I've tried and I just don't have enough video memory. When I open up certain programs, like xchess, the titlebar and menu options are off the screen to the top
and I have to drag the window down to access it. I've openned up some graphics files that were large enough to go outside more than one of the borders.

Is there a way I can force these programs to stay within my screen boundaries?
