    Smaller? Do you actually mean a smaller resolution?

    Or is your resolution like 320x200 or something?

    In the first case, just add modelines to the X configuration file (/etc/X11/Xorg.conf IIRC). In the second, you're doomed, since that means your video card is not supported, at least not currently.
