Or you could manually edit your XF86Config file (probably at
/etc/X11/XF86Config).  Look for the section labeled "Screen".  If you
have a default color depth specified then jump down to the subsection
for that color depth and add a 'Virtual' directive.  Such as:

Virtual         1024 768

See the XF86Config(5) manpage for more info.  By default, X will give
you a virtual screen as large as the largest 'Mode' you have listed -
even if that Mode is not the one currently in use.
