I'm not sure I'm going to help you much, but on Windows, I use EMACS too, and the way I'm starting it with different resolutions is like this:
D:\emacs-22.1\bin>emacs.exe --geometry 80x50
D:\emacs-22.1\bin>emacs.exe -g 80x50
On Mac OS X, I'm using AquaMacs (aquamacs.org), and I never needed that.
Again, not much of a help, comp.emacs (gnu.emacs) newsgroup might be of bigger help:
the problem is solved. i had to change the emacs font using xfontsel. this webpage was very helpful:
after you have chosen your preferred font, you provide it in .emacs as follows:
(when (and window-system (eq system-type 'darwin))
(set-face-font 'default "-dec-terminal-bold-r-normal--12-140-75-75-c-80-dec-dectech"))
thanks for giving the google groups link, people there helped me out with this.
