Need more info: What distro are you using, your video card, monitor?
I'll assume you are using RedHat 5.x.
Make sure you have at least the 16color XServer installed. I'd also install
the SVGA XServer too.
# Which server does X point to?
# If it's VGA16 then you will get 16 color service.
# If it's SVGA you have a few more choices.
# Enter proper information about your hardware.
# Select your desired resolution.
# Try using CTRL,ALT,+ to change resolutions.
# CTRL,ALT,BKSPC to abort X.
My guess is that you don't have the proper XServer installed and you aren't
putting in the correct information about your hardware. Sometimes, it
requires a little experimentation with Horiz and Vertical sych rates - BEWARE
of entering values that are outside of your monitor's capabilities as you may
damage your hardware.
Use at least XFree86 3.3.1 - RedHat has an Errata page that includes updates
to XFree86 for both additional functionality and increased security
