This is actually a window manager issue but I know that I can specify the
size and location of a window using commandline arguments (man xerm,
/-geometry). Xterm uses -geometry and gnome-terminal uses --geometry, so you
may have to play around a little to make sure GNOME-enabled window managers
do what you intend.

There may be a way to specify this in X instead of letting the window
manager handle it. An XFree86 list/newsgroup would be a good place to ask
about that.
