Thanks, I already did this, but you have to realize that
this option is only good if you trying to reconfigure
resolution for distro that is already on hard-disk. My
question is is there any way to change the resolution 
when you boot from CD? Or boot CD with specified resolution.
Thanks for your suggestion.
