change screen resolution?

I managed to qemu freebsd 6.1 and, somehow, install kde on it. It wasn´t difficult, though cdrom access was really slow. Maybe something to do with dma?
Anyway, i´m happy with my install, cause I can learn some bsd stuff from inside.
Next thing is setting screen resolution. Its running in 640x480. There is no '/etc/X11' on my install, so which config file am I supposed to edit?

ps - host machine is debian sarge with 1024mb ram.

Try running xorgconfig from the command line. That will guide you through the process and create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
