Change Resolution in RH 7.3?

I'd like to change the resolution I set during the installation och RH 7.3

Right now I have 1024*768, but I want to change it to 1280*1024, what do I have to do in order to achieve this mission.

1. Xconfigurator
2. ctrl-alt-( + or - ) if you have more resolutions specified in XF86Config
3. Edit your XF86Config file accordingly

You will have to edit /etc/XF86Config-4 in the screen section to change your resolution.
I can never change my resolution using the ctrl-alt-+ it will change the res then log me out.
