And for posterity, another way to handle this, for those who don't have a rescue disk handy: Swap over to a text console (e.g. press CTRL ALT F1), log in as root, and run "system-config-display --reconfig". Then go back to your GUI screen (e.g. press CTRL ALT F7), restart the X server (e.g. the hotkey for that is usually CTRL ALT BACKSPACE), and you'll get the X server running in whatever mode you just configured. That lets you see what you're doing, straight away. And allows you to make multiple changes, if you have to, without a lot of rebooting. Just went through that malarkey over the last few days, with the new way of configuring X which automatically tries to configure itself and ignore you settings - continually getting it wrong.
