perhaps use the term "desktop"? many users equate "screen" to that plate of 
glass that they can touch.

"Each desktop is assigned an F-key. F%1 is normally assigned to the first 
desktop, F%2 to the second desktop and so on. This desktop is assigned F%3. 
You can switch between desktops by pressing the CTRL, ALT and appropriate 
F-key at the same time. "

perhaps state that this is due to hardware driver issues (so they don't think 
it's because KDE coders suck ;)

"<b>Warning</b>: due to video card driver issues, running multiple desktops 
may cause system crashes on some computers."
