what to do if i don't have XF86Config


i hv fedora core 4. but i cant seem to change my resolution from 800*600 to 1024*768. i searched through the net and i found out that i am supposed to hv a file named XF86Config under the directory /etc/X11/ or /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/ . but i dont hv that file !! and there was this another thing saying that i might hv to run XConfigurator which is also not present in my system . now what can i do to change the resolution ?

I thought Fedora Core 4 used X.org....

If I'm not wrong, Do you have a file called /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

if so, the lines in that fil you would want to look at changeing are:
Code:
Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen 1"
    Device         "My Video Card"
    Monitor        "My Monitor"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection     "Display"
        Viewport    0 0
        Depth       8
        Modes      "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection     "Display"
        Viewport    0 0
        Depth       16
        Modes      "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection     "Display"
        Viewport    0 0
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
Possibly, also try
`X -configure` or `xorgconfig`
