Excellent. Editting your inittab will do the trick too. The "init x" way 
will allow you to do it without rebooting. I've been using Linux for 
some time now, but for whatever reason, I just found that out. Anything 
that enables me to avoid rebooting makes me happy.

Yep! Try this in a console:

xgamma -g 2

The higher the number, the brighter it is. To reset it, use xgamma -g 1
