KDE problems with Redhat 7.0

I installed Redhat 7.0 and everything works fine, except when I start KDE it's in 16 colours with 640x480 resolution. How do I change it?

easy. Just open the setup program as root and configure the Xserver.

You configure the X server by running the program (as root)

letter case has to be exact

could be done with setup

root@whatever# setup [enter]

it will open a menu; the last choice is configure xserver
there you select the monitor type and the video card; after that you are able to select the size of the screen and the bitrate of the colors and test it.
