Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The only thing I can think of seeing your config is that your Screen section is pointing to "My monitor" and your monitor Identifier is set at "Monitor1". Now you got me stumped. Also get rid of your virtual setting since your not using it.
Gotta go to a bicycle criterium.. be back in a couple hours... sorry
its as if my desktop is just higher than 1024x768, if i move the cursor to the right where its cut off, it will move over and i can see the end of my taskbar, same on the bottom and the left side... its like 1400x1000 or somthing
Somewhere when you set up the config of x during installation you had the choise to have a virual desktop yes or no. I supose you said YES and gave the size for it. Would you have chosen NO there would not have been a desktop larger than your screen.
Try to re-configure your X and screen settings and you'll be allright.
ya i just went through the xconfig setup and made sure there was no virtual desktop settings, so that issue is taken care of... after reading NVIDIA's readme's about the drivers on the site im beginning to lean towards the problem being this is a laptop, and i might need to add a special "Option" for my laptop resolution
