How to save the video setting permanently ?

I just installed the DSL onto my hard drive few days back.

Everytime i boot up the DSL , it will always prompt me to set the
video resolution, whether do i use USB mouse and dpi setting.

Just wondering why this happen and how could i make it permanently saved
onto the hard drive.

Thanks a lot.

How are you setting the resolution? I have never used DSL, but I assume the settings are in /etc/X11/xorg.conf which need to be altered and saved by root.
