Try https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI , once setup
you should be able to change resolutions fine.
Great thing about the ubuntu is theres lots of
documentation/howtos/handholding centralised on their own site and
others like www.ubuntuguide.org to handle all the typical questions,
great for the new users :)
hope this helps
