Makin' some progress here. But I don't know exactly which setting controls my Screen Resolution. I tried a couple of options (even some that I didn't know what the heck they were). Mainly I would like to have a font that I don't have to squint at, and maybe get my background picture to not look like a blob of... whatever this is

I can't wait to see how your desktop looks when you're finished with it! Be sure and post a screenshot for us.
EDIT: There are also utilities you can use to edit your IceWM desktop. I've tried most of them and the results vary. You might want to try them. More on those:
To me though, it's just so easy to edit the configuration files, I don't bother with any of them.

I'll go ahead and mark this one as solved. Thanks again, Dan! You're help was very much appreciated. Now I got a problem with screen resolution. It went to a huge font after I logged out and back in. But there are several threads available to help me on this, so I'll utilize those.
