Kelphyr, type: mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
look for lines that say Modes (or Mode i don't remember) and change them to suit your needs.
That's for X, if you want to change console resolution, mcedit /etc/lilo.conf and then run lilo (it's not recommended for a new Linux guy to touch this...).

its a different story for X,

checkout your /etc/X11/xorg.conf or use xorgconfig. Search through this forum for some answers, and answers to problems you will face including the Keyboard -> kbd issue.
