Everything loaded properly from the cdrom. auto ran, downloaded all required update, and terminated gracefully. I am running an AMD 64 opteron processor 1 gig ram 2 nvidia dual head cards. 1 AGP 6600 and 1 PCI MX4000 (vga and tv out).

I'm a newbie to SuSE recently jumpped the fedora ship after the premature release of core 6 screwed up my system and wouldn't install.

WoW is seeing my 2560 pixel dual display and using it all. making it very difficult to play the game.
my players is right in the middle.

CAN i tell WoW to only use 1280 width??

You can configure WoW for different resolutions in it's WTF config file under drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft/WTF/

Just change gxResolution "" to reflect the resolution you want... such as the wide resolution of gxResolution "1280x800" that I use.

You will probably need to configure X so that it understands the resolution, by adding a Modeline under your video card Device section of your /etx/X11/xorg.conf.  You can lookup good Modeline's for your monitor online... is a good resource for configuring modelines, and figuring out what you can use via EDID.
