Sorry, I keep sending to personal rather than debian-user.  David's suggestion worked.  Thank you David.  I've got much better video now, and good window sizing.

I'm not that familiar with the kind of words I should use for this video 
problem with every sixth character blurred.  I wonder if there's another 
word I should use for google searches?  Can anyone make a suggestion?
Do you have an LCD screen? Is the resolution your card is running
under the same as the resolution of the screen ?

The effect you're describing can happen when e.g. you have a 1024x768
monitor and your graphics card is running in 800x600.
That sounds like it could be it.  I do have a sharp LCD screen.  The
recommended resolution stated on page 29 is 1280x1024.  Looks like
my highest resolution in the XF86Config-4 file is 1152x864.  Can you
suggest a good way to generate a new XF*-4 file?

You can edit this directly inserting the proper video modes into the
"Screen" section following the same format as is already there.  While
there ensure that the proper HorizSync VertRefresh values are listed in
the "Monitor" section.  

I have to do this with just about every distribution I install except
knoppix which I used to find the most appropriate values for me.
