Well in other distros, I can't get nvida to work at all, here they work too much, I need 1024x768 at 70mhz.  i edit the xorg. like i always do.  upon reboot,  the system defaults to 1268x whatever.  its too small and always defaults to the the smaller text  any ideas?

I assume from your post that you have an Nvidia card.
In that case, Have you installed the Nvidia drivers for your GPU?

If you install the drivers, you should see a new application on your menu, the Nvidia settings tool.
Use that to set your resolution.

It'll help more if you tell us which nvidia model you have, which version of VL did you isntall ??

lcd monitors and laptop screens have a fixed resolution. What size is your monitor and what is its native resolution? lcd monitors usually prefer a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Check your monitor manual if you're not sure.

I don't know if nVidia drivers allow different resolutions for lcd monitors and of course, I don't know what your monitor's resolution is.
