Description of problem:
I am trying to compile the kernel with a configuration tweek - the
addition of IEEE1294 support.
The window is taller than my screen (currently 832x624) and I cannot

I have my screen working at 1024x768 which works fine for all of the

Folks with 832 x 624 or smaller pixel count may still have problems
(this was my previous screen pixel count). I got better video cables
and better fonts seemed to arrive in the updates, so 1024x768 works
