u can try (as root):
redhat-config-xfree86

or there must surely be a gui to it under system settings/tools?

Yes, there is a GUI, but my monitor is not in the list. If Im running RH9 with an unprobed monitor, the maximum resolution I can get is 800x600, which is really annoying when I have a 19" monitor. Can I somehow add my monitor preferences to Linux?
Thanks

Some "generic" monitors should be on the list. Try choosing a generic monitor withe the desired resolution and refresh rate.

redhat-config-xfree86 is a gui.
u can also find it under system-settings/tools-display or something of the sort.

start of with reasonable settings and then progress. u may not want to start off with 1600x1200, and 32 bits. but if it works for u, then great.
