Screen resolution

How do I change screen resolution when my application starts and then restore the original resolution when it closes, running under W95, 98?
It can obviously be done without rebooting because  QuickRes can do it, so how do I do it on the fly with Delphi3.
I must admit that I haven't got round to trying the old InitGraph() and RestoreCrtMode combination yet, I have a feeling I'll be wasting my time with them.

Well ..... you've really done it this time!!

I've just spent the whole morning and a significant chunk of the afternoon downloading 100's of Mb of handy code, FAQ's tips, tricks, etc .... all that I'll read/use "one day when I get a spare moment".
Sites like that one are dangerous!
Oh, I forgot to mention I also got the bit about screen resolution.
Thanks once again 'inthe' for your help.
