I have Samsung SyncMaster 750s Monitor. I have set resolution to 1280x1024. Problem is: text is too smal, hard to see, so I try smaler resolution, 1024x768 was perfect. But now window doesn't fit to screen! Why is that? What can I do?

I use Best Linux 2000 in X-window.

in /etc/XF86Config adjust the Virtual line in the "Screen" Section.
Also remove the corresponding setting in Modes line.
