Different display settings for 2 users.

Can anyone help me, I have just bought a TFT monitor for my pc. I have set it to 1280x1024 but my son who uses the pc wants to have it set to 1024x768 is there any way I can have different settings for each user. I am running XP pro with an AMD 2400 with a ATI Radeon 9550SE 128mb graphics card & 512mb ram.

I have tried using the video card setting & it remains on the last one it was set to for all users.

If you have an nvidia card, the nview options allow you to have different desktops - diffferent wallpaper and different resolutions. Don't know about other chipsets.

I don't even think you have to change user to allow them - but it can mes up the icon placements (just been playing with it!
