Screen resolution problem


Hi, just installed Ubuntu version 5.1 64bit, everything is going fairly smoothly except for a few things. Firstly it insists on making the screen 1024x768. I have changed it in xorg.conf, and in the setup thing, and changed the monitor frequencies. Restarting the x server lets me have my new resolution. But once I reboot the computer the changes disappear and it's back to the old one. How do I stop this?
Also how do I make numlock be on?
Cheers

It's very bizarre... I started up ubuntu and it was in the low resolution, but xorg.conf was the same. So shut down XServer, and started it back up. Suddenly it's read the xorg and is in high resolution. What's going on?

System > Preferences > Screen Resolution--there should be a checkbox about using certain settings at startup.

Code:
sudo apt-get install numlockx

I've tried that. First startup, the only resolutions shown are 1024x786 and lower, and frequency of 60hz only. After restarting XServer all the other modes are suddenly there. Only tickbox is about keeping settings for this login only, and that didn't make any difference.
