i have Intel 945 GMA. does it really help if i post my xorg.conf? it is fresh installation
Have you by chance tried 1280x800 in your xorg.conf ?
yes, i've tried. but every time xorg starts, it always override the setting i made on the xorg.conf. then X start on resolution 1024x768.

thanks to jmpmjmpm, i've tried using the 915resolution patch i got from the net. and it works!! my xorg runs on resolution 1280x768...
but it seems there are one problem, i kinda feel that the resolution is supposed to be 1280x800. because the icon appearance seems streched vertically
then i go to "init 3", enter command "915resolution -l" to list resolutions that my card supported. and there are no option 1280x800 listed!
does anyone have an idea about this?

@jmpjpm, is ubuntu 6.10 buggy? i've installed it in my computer (core2DUO processor), but sometimes the system crashed and said something about CPU0 and CPU1 (which i assume there's a problem regarding my dual-core processor)..
