I can pull it down and move it around, but in Netscape - preferences, top left
has something about security and top right has only an X.  I will have to become
more familiar with XF86Config to solve this.  There are 49 modelines listed and
the one I believe fits my monitor is the second - 640x480 @ 60 hz.  The first
listed is 640x400 @ 70 hz.   Maybe the first one listed is the one used
(XF86Config just says the correct one is "automatically" selected).  I'll
reconfigure tomorrow.

That probably explains that.  I probably threw in an "su" on the user's screen.

Thanks, bruce
