I have the opposite problem to the resolutions found in a number of "how-to"s/posts.

I want to configure 8.04 to display in the desktop using only a portion of the actual display screen area, i.e., display in a 480x320 pixel box on a portion of the screen, rather than full screen at the lower resolution (prototyping UI for an embedded device with a small display).

I know this can be done accidently if you have an issue with your video/display drivers, but how do you do it on purpose?

Thanks for your support!
