Thanks. That worked great: I set the monitor size and now have a nice 
big font. Follow-up question, though: how do I increase the emulated 
screen resolution to the standard 1200x900 or something close to it? 
I've tried various tweaks to xorg.conf based on some information on the 
wiki, but it always comes up 1024x768.

Thanks again,
