Look into RandR. RandR is how screens and such get set up on modern Linux. The "xrandr" terminal utility should be installed by default. But there are other programs to manipulate RandR settings.
Here are a couple "xrandr" examples to get you started.
"xrandr --fb 1024x768 --output LVDS --panning 1024x768" will give you a 1024x768 "screen" and the "LVDS" (onboard LCD) will pan with mouse movement to show the entire screen.
"xrandr --fb 2048x1200 --output LVDS --scale 2x2" will give you a 2048x1200 "screen" with the onboard LCD zoomed out to show everything at once (really tiny).
