Program looks different with different resolutions

My application looks great. Unfortunately, when I run it on machines with different resolutions

    You might want to test on all system. I have abput 10 computers with all sorts of OS's to test my software on. Every time MS comes out with a new system, it costs me <g>.

I think 98 just has simpler displays, so less to go wrong.
