Same as in every other distro - edit your xorg.conf file. Find the bit that shows resolution and change it.

Mine is:
# **********************************************************************
# Screen sections
# **********************************************************************

# Any number of screen sections may be present.  Each describes
# the configuration of a single screen.  A single specific screen section
# may be specified from the X server command line with the "-screen"
# option.
Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "VESA Framebuffer"
    Monitor     "My Monitor"

# If your card can handle it, a higher default color depth (like 24 or 32)
# is highly recommended.

#   DefaultDepth 8
#   DefaultDepth 16
   DefaultDepth 24
#   DefaultDepth 32

# "1024x768" is also a conservative usable default resolution.  If you
# have a better monitor, feel free to try resolutions such as
# "1152x864", "1280x1024", "1600x1200", and "1800x1400" (or whatever your
# card/monitor can produce)

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       32
        Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

If you right click it will bring up the menu. From there go system->xsetup. Go through the setup in order to change the resolution.
