Resolution Problem:RH 9 Installation on Dell Optiplex 170L

I have installed RH 9 Installation on Dell Optiplex 170L. Everyything is okay except the display. The resolution is weird and I am not able to select a finer resolution. After changing the resolution and restarting X server, it gets stuck and goes back to 800 mode.
This resolution is giving me problems. Please suggest.

Go to CMOS setup, select Integrated Devices (LegacySelect Options), and change Onboard Video Buffer to 8MB. It will work after that. You might
want to reconfigure Xfree86 after changing it. I did it anyway.
