You have asked the same question three or four times. If someone had the
answer you're looking for, he/she would probably have told you by now.

To sum up the previous answers:
* it's not possible just by a compile switch or something, currently
  Maemo is 800*480, period.
* Making Maemo actually scalable is a big undertaking. Just making a new
  320*240 version might be an easier job: Theme changes and
  modifications to statusbar are still definitely needed.

My comments:
Even if the OS itself worked, 95% of the apps won't -- Your resolution
is only 20% of the maemo "standard".
