Is it possible at all for magento to display website in full screen?  I havn’t seen one magento site that render in full screen.  All of them are centered.  Can it be done?

It’s called fluid layout
1) change the columns’ widths to percentage instead of pixel
2) best to add a div container to wrap everything inside, then use ‘margin: 0 auto’ for the container.

#container {with: 100%; margin: 0 auto}

add body {text-align: center}

A note: it does take a bit of CSS skill and a lot of care to have the fluid layout done right so that it doesn’t fall into a usability pitfall.
The very common problem I see people using CSS styling for fluid layout is that when screen resize, the right column drops to the bottom - this is a NO NO!

where did you put your wrapper?  I tried putting div in different places in 3columns.phtm but center and right block still drops when resize.

try with min-width: pixel not percent in this case…
