quick config problem

i've got fedora core 3 installed, and during install it asked me monitor and res for default, and i set it to the right monitor, and 1024, but it won't display for some reason (black screen) and i KNOW my monitor can do that. but anyway, i'll sort that out once i'm up n running there. what i need is someone to tell me the config to edit. where my default video settings are that i can access from command line. thanks

I think Fedora Core 3 uses Xorg. If they do, you need to modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf. It might not be located in that specific directory. If not, execute this command:
find /etc -iname "xorg.conf"
If FC3 uses XFree86, then I think the config file is /etc/X11/XF86Config. Again, not sure about the location, but a similar find command will help.
