Try Ctrl-Alt and + or - on the keypad, to see if the setup program
automatically set up some other resolutions. You can also change the font
for many programs using X resources or command line options.

You have two options: to set the default wm for all users, change
/etc/X11/window-managers. To change your personal wm, make a .xsession
file in your home directory, containing these lines:
xterm -ls &
and be sure you chmod u+x .xsession.

someone else will have a suggestion.
