How to change screen resolution windows Xp

I have received a PC to set up but I don't have a display that has the required resolution that the PC has been configured with.
I can see the PC boot up until Windows Xp Pro begins installing but after a short period the screen goes blank and disk activity continues as if the PC is continuing to boot.
If I boot up in safe mode then all is ok.
Is there any way to configure the PC whilst in safe mode to boot up normally (not in safe mode) with a lower screen resolution ? In other words , can I boot up in safe mode and configure the screen resolution for normal mode? Using a registry setting maybe ?

Remove any video driver software...it'll boot to a default, lower resolution.

Derp...yes, boot to VGA and remove any video software. Changing the video settings may work as well.
