Welcome to the heard.  You can change your full name by running
$ su -c chfn <user>

su will ask you your root password.

Linuxconf is RH specific, whereas the basic tools get the job done
just as well.  KUser can also do this for you if you haven't gotten
used to the command line, yet.  Get used to using the command line if
at all possible.  This doesn't mean you can't use GUIs, just you
really, really should know how to do it if you can't get X to work or
you end up in single-user land for some reason.
