I had all of the display types.

16 24 and 64 or 32 one of those I forget but I think it is the on for the most colors you can have.

it is probably due to your monitor configuration, check the book that came with the monitor for the horizontal and vertical refresh rates. then reconfigure your monitor settings so you have the right frequency.

I may be misunderstanding the question.  To switch graphics resolution while X is running, press CTL-ALT-PLUS (use the plus key on the numeric keypad).  If you have many resolutions listed in your config file, it will start with the first one it comes to unless you have a line saying something like "DefaultResolution 800x600" or something like that.

DefaultResolution "800x600"

Does that help?

I'm sorry it was at 640x480 and I can't scroll around to see the page.  I just see a certain part of the page.  And got some help from someone else and fixed that problem.  But know I can't see the whole page with scrolling around the screen.  How can I fix this.  I have Linux_mandrake version 6.0 and it doesn't have a virtual setting to comment out.  

I got this from Red Hat site.  The said to comment out the virtual command in the configuration that is giving after you run Xconfigurator.  Linux-Mandrake uses the Red Hat version of Linux.

The large virtual desktop is the normal behavior (!!) of xfree86, which is annoying.

basically, where you've got your largest desktop resolution, (eg. 640x480, 800x600, 1152x864), xwindows will take the biggest, and make that the size of your virtual desktop.

So, to make the size of your virtual desktop equal the size of your display, you can only have 1 resolution defined in your XF86Config.

Annoying, eh?   I struggled with this one for a couple of weeks before someone kindly told me what the problem was--I was expecting the wrong behavior.
