Screen Resolution problem w/ 2.6.9 Kernel + FC1

When I installed the 2.6.9 kernel, my screen resolution changed from 1024x768 down to 800x600 and won't change back. I had a similar problem before and a friend was able to fix it for me, but I'm not sure how he did it. I installed the new kernel so it wouldn't overwrite the information from my old kernel, so it's not a big problem, but it is one I would like to fix. If you need more info, just ask, and I'll be happy to provide it. Thanks in advance for your help.

Are you in any way using third party driver before? If you've installed something like NVIDIA driver, you need to reinstall it everytime you change/upgrade your kernel.
