Actually, I am using putty from Windows XP.



And no, I don't have cygwin.



from putty, run "telinit 3" that should stop X running and you should have a text login on your linux host. log in as root, then run
system-config-display. after that, "telinit 5" will restart X



I tried running system-config-display from the prompt. I get a blank screen and this is what I get after a while:

most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the window manager.
