Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config, find the screen/display section append and a lines looking like this:

Virtual 600 1280
Viewport 0 0

The 'Viewpport' entry might not be necessary (tells x where to put the upper left corner of the screen).

A complete example looks like this:

SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Virtual 1600 1400
Viewport 0 0
EndSubSection

All can be found in the XF86config manpage........
