    Here's a "Screen" section from my /etc/XF86Config"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1600x1200" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

What the multiple choice of "Modes"  does is change the magnification of
the whole screen when one does CTRL/ALT/+ or CTRL/ALT/-.  By "CTRL/ALT/+"
I mean push simultaneously the CTRL, the ALT, and the rightmost + key. The
other, usually used, + key doesn't work for this purpose. Similarly for
the - key.  Repeated use of CTRL/ALT/+ cycles through the above four
"Modes", with the "640x480" having the greatest magnification.
