[CentOS] Thanks

I was unable to find a xorg.conf file. Bloody Linux does not have a search
feature to find the files and I have been unsuccessful in locating it. When
I go to the GUI portion to change resolutions I have the same options as you
listed below. As for rebooting vs logging out ... I still haven't figured
out how to log out.

Geez! What am I doing wrong? I've been using this for *years*.

Recall thye aprt I said "... to get multiple resolutions"? Apparently
you don't have multiple resolutions yet.

I have 4 resolutions that I cycle through using <ctrl>-<alt> with
numeric keypad + or -.

If you find your xorg.conf file, see if you have a line similar to this

   Modes     "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

If not, you only have a single fixed resolution and the <ctl> thingy has
nothing to do.
