#  Hi all,

#  can anyone tell me how to tell octave that
#  I want the graph to be a certain size on the screen?

  Apart from resizing the window, I can't think of anything else than
putting in your Šþ/.Xdefaults a line like

Gnuplot*geometry:  500x300

  Replace 500x300 by whatever size you want. Then, do from the shell 

  xrdb Šþ/.Xdefaults

  Next time gnuplot is called (gnuplot is the program that does the
plotting for octave), it will do drawings in a window of the
specified. If you are already in octave and have already done some
plots, do 'closeplot'; this will kill the gnuplot process (and close
its plot windows). The next plot will be the right size. 

  I don't think you can resize gnuplot's window from the command line.
