usernames can't have spaces.... (or punctuation marks or other special characters ... only numbers and letters).

for the login name use something like sstevens, samstevens, stevens, or stevenss. In the Full Name bock you can put in Sam Stevens.

If you can login as root with X-Windows, use the selection Menu - System Settings - Users and Groups to add the new user.

Yes, linux is a bit more complicated then windows. It will take time and reading the documentation will help alot. What steps did you try to change your resolution. What kind of graphics card and monitor do you have?

PS. This could be read by people all over the world whose working level of english is not as good as yours. So keep the instant messaging short hand to a minimium.
