XFree86 screen area problem

I just set up FreeBSD 5.0 on my PC and am configuring
XFree86. Thus far everything is peachy except for one
thing - all of the visual elements when I start X (the
windows, the fonts, etc) appear huge on screen to the
point where they're not really unusable. It looks like
the screen area was set to 640 x 480 when it should be
1024 x 768, but I'm having trouble figuring out why
this is happening. The only error message I've found
shows up when I shut down X, it reads:

xauth: (argv):1: bad display name ":0" in "remove"

I've also been pouring through the Config file, but I
haven't seen anything that looks like a culprit. My
monitor settings are as follows:

Identifier "NEC Monitor"
HorizSync 31.5 - 60
VertRefresh 56.2 - 75.1
DisplaySize 304 228

Any help on this would be much appreciated.
