virtual resolution issue - xorg.conf - eeepc 1000ha - debian 5.0 (lenny)

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to get my baby laptop to have a virtual resolution that is larger than the standard 1024x600. I sort of need it because some windows in Debian are larger than the 600 vertical I have so I can't hit the 'ok' button to make the changes I need to make.

I did a
Xorg -configure
to get a good standard for my hardware.
Here is my current (modified) xorg.conf:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     " Configured"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

                Modes   "1024x600" "800x600" "640x480"
                Virtual 2048 2048
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24

                Virtual 2048 2048
Unfortunately I still only get a 1024x600 desktop and it doesn't scroll anywhere. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
