Xconfig for Linux RedHat 9.0
I am not all that new to linux, in fact right when I thought I was getting linux down, I messed up my linux machine. I run Linux RedHat 9.0, I duelboot with Windows XP.. Everytimes I would go into linux it would sho up in 800x600 which was okay for veiwing because text was larger, but my XP machine is 1024x768 so when I would go into Linux I would have to resize screen so there would not be any black around the picture. I got tired of doing this and tried to put up with the small text of having my screen in 1024x768 in linux.. Well after my eyes stated hurting (even with my glasses) I said screw it I am going to put up with resizing every time I boot linux, now that I am back in 800X600 it won't start the X server, unless I am logging in as root..
Can somone help me? I have tried typing in the Xconfig command that I have used before in 7.1 and 7.3, but I think they changed the Xconfig command in 9.0 Redhat linux.. does anyone know the new commmands?
