How can I get it to go on to the internet automatically (bypassing the
knetwork manager)?

Why does it insist on resetting my screen resolution every time I get
into my user account? How can I fix this so I can set the resolution
once and have it keep the settings? Background: It wouldn't let me out
of 800x600 (640x480 with 3D) until I copied over the monitors section
from an old xorg.conf.
