two ways to work with the vertical screen size limitation:

1. use the screen panning applet on the taskbar to pan further down the desktop

2. use <alt><right-mouse> to move the dialogue box further up the sreen

Some windows still could not be fully displayed under extended mode. For example, System->Administration->Login window
2. use <alt><right-mouse> to move the dialogue box further up the sreen
This method works.
