X resolution problems


FC6 i686
Below is the xorg.conf, Problem is , if you go into >Administration >Display and make settings it only allows to set at 640x480 , 800x600 , 1600x1200 and no matter what you set and apply and reboot the computer it will only come as 1600x1200. I want it to come up as 1024x768 .
There must be a bug in Xorg, because Fedora and Ubuntu are having similar xorg problems.

Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "Device"

Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"

	DefaultDepth	24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		1
		Modes		"1440x1440" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		4
		Modes		"1440x1440" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"

		Modes		"1440x1440" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		15
		Modes		"1440x1440" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"

		Modes		"1440x1440" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"

I don't want all those Modes I want the resolution of 1024x768 only.
I have other Linux boxes setup at only 1024x768 with no problems.

OK, then do this:

Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Device		"whatever yours is"
	Monitor		"whatever yours is"
	DefaultDepth	24
		SubSection "Display"
		Depth		24
		Modes		"1024x768"
	EndSubSection
EndSection
