How to change screen area?

Hi all, I've installed Red Hat 6.1 with Gnome last night. I found the resolution too low (640x480 pixels, I guess and 8-bit color depth). I couldn't figure out how to change these settings. Maybe my S3 Trio3D/2X isn't detected properly. But I'm not sure. During installation I found S3 Trio3D in the list and selected it.

I'm absolutely new to this linux thing. I'll greatly appreciate any help.

ctrl-alt-(+ or - on keypad) should cycle through all available resolutions...
