comment How do I resize my emacs22 window?
Not sure, but as a long-shot, what is: "ctrl-h v window-size-fixed"? It should be "nil". If you are not even getting a mouse-pointer change it sounds like X rather than emacs. You wouldn't possibly have something set in .Xdefaults would you?

Do you want to change the actual server name, or just the way it's displayed in the prompt?

comment root running emacs
Is emacs your default editor? (which means another process my kick it off). What is the parent process? (type "$ ps -ef | grep emacs" and look at the second number, then look at which process has that as the first number).
