I did the initial install then found out the video card I was using was a P.O.S. and I set it higher than it can handle. Is there a way I can change the resolution from the command line via "Linux rescue"? Its a Redhat Enterprise 3 install. It wouldn't be a huge deal to do a reinstall but it would be nice to know. Hate reinstalls being the answer to something that shouldnt be so differcult.

Yes, you can.  Edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config file.

Another way, if you've changed video cards or just want to start again, is delete the /etc/X11/XF86Config file, then come up into graphical mode.  You'll be dumped into the original configurator that you you used on install.
