Default Screen resolution between windows acounts

i like my screen resolution at 1024*768, but the rest of my family are blind and want it at 800*600. We all have diferent acounts on windows XP but the screen resolution is the same on all of them. if i change it to what i want on my acount, it chages it on all of them. Is there a way to have different screen resolutions on diferent acounts?

Sorry, but you can't. There is no way of having different screen resolutions on different profiles, I'm afraid, not even on XP.

YOu may not be able to change resolutions for different accounts, but you can use this utility. It allows for fast change:

Then click on the Windows XP Utilities and select Quickres for Windows XP.

Man, I need to know how to use Linux. Never touched a Linux powered system before. I'm a Linux virgin so to speak. Can't wait to take some classes on it. My dad keeps telling me that Linux is the future. I doubted him, but it's worth looking into.
