Virtual screen bigger than screen

Under Windows 2000/XP, is it possible to have a desktop size bigger than the screen resolution (i.e. desktop size=2 560 x 1 024 and monitor resolution= 1 280 x 1 024)?
In this case, the goal is to see on the screen 1 280x 1 024 pixels of the desktop (no stretch).

I believe that's a function of the Graphics Card Driver.  I've seen it before, but I don't recall which one(s) support it.
if you are referring to the feature that is common with xwindows, no, this by default is not a part of W2k or WinXP.... As stated by leew, there might be some graphics cards that support this, but I do not believe that I have seen any that are common out there... You might also try doing a search of tucows.com or download.com to see if there are any utilities out there that do the same thing using a software application....

Is it possible to create a virtual graphics adapter?. So desktop size will be equal to screen plus virtual screen. This is what I would like.
