Changing display/screen resolution

Can anyone tell me how to change the screen resolution and display with Solaris 9?

Is there a GUI utility?

Thanks.

Managed to get it working. I should have been more explicit; I've installed Solaris 9 on an intel Notebook and while is works using a VESA driver the quality isn't too good.

First I had to download the xFree86 porting kit (http://developers.sun.com/solaris/developer/support/driver/tools/video/video-index.html).

Followed the instuctions to install the xFree86 drivers. Then follwing the instruction in the reference shivsa provided.

And it work!

Thanks.
