Changing resolution from terminal

OK... Making the switch from MS to linux... trying to cover my basics by using Virtual PC 2004... It all installed fine but, I changed the resolution during the setup stages.

I can get to terminal and log in but... can't figure out how to change the resolution.

Its Fedora Core 5...
Thanks

I assume you're talking about X resolution and not framebuffer, edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf using your favorite editor.
