Question change refresh rate during graphical startup


I'm still setting up my fedora core installation but I have some little problems.
Well, I installed nVidia drivers and everything works OK, except by that during graphical boot and even in login, refresh rate is too high (75Hz) and I have an LCD monitor wich is best seen in 60 Hz and 1024x768. I can change this rate inside my user account or in root, but it seems to be a per-user setting, and graphical boot doesn't change. How can I change that?

Thank you very much.

I have pretty much the same setup, I just ran as root redhat-config-xfree86 and it remembers the settings through reboots.

Also make sure that your monitor is set to the correct brand and model, and if that doesn't exist, choose 'Generic LCD Display --> Generic 1024x768"

Good luck.
