Hi Bill,

>From the XF86Config file:

Section "Screen"
    Driver      "svga"
    Device      "My Video Card"
    Monitor     "Generic Monitor"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes       "1024x768i" "1280x1024i" "640x480" "800x600" 
        ViewPort    0 0
	Virtual     1024 768
        Depth       16
        Modes       "1024x768i" "640x480" "800x600" 
        ViewPort    0 0
	Virtual     1024 768

Try adding/removing/changing the "Virtual" line. It is optional.
