Scaling 1440x900 down to fit on a 1280x800 screenview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I'm trying to get KoTOR to play nice on Debian Squeeze using Wine 1.3.10.

Is there a way to make Linux rescale it to my laptop's 1280x800 resolution before displaying it? It's a Compaq nc6400, the graphics controller is an Intel 945 or similar. Cheers Col (HowTos)
