Yes, as root try something like;

system-config-display --reconfig --set resolution 1024x768 --set depth 24 --set driver XXXX --set card YYYY
Where XXXX is your video driver and YYYY is your video card, see your /etc/X11/xorg.conf for the info. And of course you can always edit this file by using vi or nano or any other console based text editor(available), for example;

nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
