resolution size?

hello i am new to linux. i am running redhat 7.0. kde 2.0 the problem i am having is the resolution on the screen makes everything so small i can hardly read it. is there an easy way to make it like 800X600. i like linux so far but i would be more enjoyable if i didnt have to squint to read everything. it is starting to give me a headache.

thank you in advance.

The thing about linux is you have to learn how to read - you must read, regarding your problem try to use ctrl-alt + or - combination to change resolution, but it won't work if there is only one mode specified, in this case read this!. I am not being rude or anything, but the whole concept of linux is to learn and advance, it is not a toy, for toys windows streamline seems to fit nicely in such category.
