Same here

only worse: my dsktp is about a 1/3 larger than my screen. (Gateway lptp, w/ 17", intel 82852 standard, max res. 1024x768). KDE offers me to jack up the res some but dsktp is still way big... No way to mess with config since that turns the GUI off. 1024x768 was tiny, which I liked, under M$.
Anybody can help us? Thanks!!
