Once again I am confused. The way I change screen resolution is:
1. switch to a termina [crl-alt-F1]
2. change to init level 3 [ init 3]
3. Use : system-config-display to change resolution [it will adjust
xorg.conf]
4. Change back to init level 5 [init 5]

The screen resolution options available in system-config-display are determined by what's in your xorg.conf.  If your xorg.conf isn't properly set up then you won't be ablet o use that utility to change to your desired resolution whithout making some changes no xorg.conf.

Also, for a one-liner for changing screen resolutions without leaving x, check out xrandr (which has the same limitation as system-config-display I mentioned above)
