you should be able to create your own modelines as small as you want, there's a site around that generates them for you but i've not got the link right now, search google for "colas modeline generator" i think. then you copy the lines it gives you to /etc/X11/XF86Config (carefully) and set the screensize to the name listed in that modeline. obiovusly the validity of the modline is only as good as the data you give it.

Here's that link acid was talking about:
modeline generator

Get as much info on your monitor as possible before you start.

You can enter in any screen size you want in /etc/X11/XF86Config file and experiment until you get it right.
