Run "Xconfigurator" as root on redhat based systems. Note: If you choose
more than one resolution, it will start in the smallest and set the
"virtual" desktop size to the largest. "CTRL ALT +" will cycle through the
resolutions you've chosen once you start X.

I find it easiest to only chose one resolution/bitdepth combo. Then I
don't have to fiddle everytime I start X.

BTW... That's the second time I've replied to a post and asked a question
that was answered in the original post. I must be slipping. Sorry about
