Try Ctrl-Alt-[+] ... using the + from the number pad.

Now, if you edit the conf file you will see a screen section. Find the display with the depth you want and add the resolutions you want (the default one will be the first listed).
SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Modes "1024x768" "800x600"
                Depth     24
Also, near the top of the screen section, (under Monitor) add the line
DefaultDepth 24
or whatever you want the default to be.

the glitch was DefaultDepth 24
it just did not like that so i made sure Depth 24 was in the screen section with my resolutions.
