The easiest way will be to run Xconfigurator and select a resolution in the 16bit table (center column). Note that you have to have enough memory on the video card to do this. If you don't have enough for the resolution selected the server test will fail and you can try a lower resolution. I usually only run Xconfigurator when the X server isn't running, from a single user boot or by going to a virtual console (ctrl/alt/F1) and killing the X server. I've had problems with the server test if X is running.

Make sure you have the drivers for your video card installed first.....
Then run Xconfigurator and choose the 16bit color and screen displays
you want.  Once in red hat you can hit alt, ctrl & + or - to switch through the
video modes......

Hope this helps you
