Thanks, but that didn't do it.  Alt + left mouse will drag a window around
the display, but this problem was that the whole display was wrong.  What
it looked like was that instead of trying to be in 800x600 mode, the
server was trying to go to 600x800.

However, I was able to get it fixed.  I killed the X server (Ctrl + Alt +
Backspace), and this let the system finish booting.  Once the GUI login
appeared (still with the invalid display settings) I switched to the
console (Ctrl + Alt + F1), logged in as root, and edited the X config
screen settings by hand (the Hsync and Vsync values were wrong).  On
rebooting, the machine came up with a valid display and I was able to
finish the setup properly.

Now I just need to get my wireless network card working and I'll be all set.

Thanks for the response.

It's so simple to be wise.  Just think of something stupid to say and then
don't say it.
