facing problem with my display.

I have been using my fedora 8, on my laptop since last 8 months.
day before yesterday, I tried to make a multiscreen notebook.
I made some changesd here and there, then rebooted..
now I can see my GRUB but my kernal couldn't be able to detect/recognize/adapt the changes I have made.
resulting which I can not see the login screen.
after grub all I can see is a blank screen.

I couldn'e exactly remember what changes I had made, It was my first time and I was experimenting..

but I do remember changing the resolution.

so please I would be grate full if any body can help me out.

I went into rescue mode. and tries finding the file in which resolution and stuff is stored. but no success.

maybe no help but,

dig around in your /boot/grub/menu.lst

if you plan of fiddling with it back-it up first!

could have changed the console setting or something
"facing problem with my display" cute

No warranty on the ideas.
