cannot get x configured

Can anyone one help me get xfree86 configured? I already have it installed and I cannot get get the virtual desktop disabled. I already tried ctrl alt + and it is not doing any good . this only seems to work in the graphical configuration programalso the mouse does not work right when i startx. What I am referring to as the virtual desktop is the desktop is larger than the screen and the desktop can be moved wiht the mouse. I would like to disable this featrue.
