Got positives on CD ... seem small on screen compared to my digital images.

Presuming that I properly juxtaposed those two bits:

When you get a Picture CD from the photo lab, the images are 1.5 megapixel JPEGs. They're made by projecting onto a 1536x1024 Bayer sensor — sort-of a digital contact print. If you want higher resolution, you'll need to scan the negatives with a real scanner. For top quality, you'll probably want to find a shop with a drum scanner.
