Do a search in the CRT forum or CRT archives for setup on a sony. I believe the program you want is called "pjcalc".

2 feet shouldn't be a problem. You are obviously floor mounting your projector? Just put it on a short table or something to compensate.

9x7 might be a bit big for that projector -- you might want a smaller image (it will increase the brightness).
