"Display" is when you have a ``Destop Manager´´ e.g. Gnome installed.

The Icon for Display : Menu , System >> Preferences >> Display.

( The command for Gnome is $ gnome-display-properties )

Many of the system-config tools were removed in RHEL 6 including system-config-display. It is no longer in the repositories. If the post above does not help try xrandr.
