I know I saw a post on something like this when I set up my Acer Aspire One with Ubuntu, but I cannot find it. When I want to, for example, set up the wireless connections, and a dialogue box opens up, the [next] or whatever buttons ar not visible, as the screen resolution places them below the screen. Can somebody help me PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE? Thanks in advance!

As I recall, I think you can press Alt key while you hold the cursor over a window and cursor changes from arrow to a cross shape and then drag the window up to access buttons...

As ArchiMark suggests. Alt acts as "handle" modifier. Its safe to drag windows by its background. When dragging by control (edit field, widget) it can act strangely. Some times this "Alt Modifier" can be reconfigured through window manager configuration. Im sure it is done in wmaker by wmakerconf.
