I am using redhat 6 but I want to configure my resolution just like my Windows system, on Win I have my video settings set at High colour 16 bit running 1024 X 768, I want to same settings on Linus but when I activate the XF86Setup and I choose what I want and click done, and save, nothing just the same very big Icons and menu system even after rebooting, how can I get the same as my Windows settings is there no-way of doing via the GUI like Windows ?

Help Please
