Changing The Screen Resolution On A Scientific Linux Virtual Machine

The following works on SL5 only: start up the virtual machine and edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf by default the last section should be:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
#                Modes "1440x900"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24

uncomment the Modes line by removing the # and change the resolution as required. New laptops have a screen resolution of 1440x900, older laptops have 1280x1024 or 1024x768. After changing /etc/X11/xorg.conf reboot the virtual machine.
