Screen resolution

OK, I use RedHat Linux 7.1 with the KDE...

During the installation of RH, I was asked to enter my screen resolution (so I did , and things work just fine... )

I was wondering, is there someplace where I can alter the screen resolution (e.g. 800x600)???

At a guess I'd try
from the command line, I think that's what I used the last time I played with RH (ages ago)

yeah it is Xconfigurator. Don't forget it is a capital X at the beginning. ( I remember the day when I spent an hour as a newbie trying to run xconfigurator instead of Xconfigurator

Just a Tip, you can always run Setup as well within RedHat 7.1, or you can just use the xf86config to setup X if Xconfigurator doesn't ever work, but never seen that happen.

Yep, Linux is case sensitive people... got to love it.
