Screen resolution limited in GNOME

I'm using Red Hat Enterprise 5.1 with Gnome 2.16 as a VMWare server.  When I go into screen resolution options, it only gives me 640x480 or 800x600 as options.  However, some applications like Logical Volume Management require larger screen resolutions.

I did some google research and people are saying to modify the xorg.conf file, however I cannot locate this file, and I'm not even sure if this will work.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?  I have only been using Linux for a couple weeks, so please bear with me.
