I've done the VGA mod, and I selected 800x600. I think it could be very useable, but there is one hitch- I can't get the verticle size to be small enough. I was expecting, a la the 575 SVGA hack, that the menu bar would be distorted, which it is. But the overall picture is out of proportion- too tall for how wide it is, even with the "VH" adjustment at minimum size. All this time people making the effort to *expand* the visible area, and here I am having trouble contracting it! Is there any kind of mod that might take care of this?
I'm going to upload a screen shot, but I'm not sure how to embed it into a forum post like this. Look in my photo gallery if I can't get it to show here.
