Problem with KDE on my new Fedora 9 system.

I just installed Fedora 9 and used yum to install KDE. I wanted to try the new KDE desktop to see if it was better than Gnome. When I logged in, I noticed that the resolution was too high and it was hurting my eyes. I found the display properties in the system settings and tried to change the resolution to 1024X768. For some odd reason, it will not let me apply the change and the "Apply" button is greyed out so I can't click it. I thought that maybe it was a permissions problem, but the button is still greyed out when I try to do this as root. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance for your help.

To add more pieces to the puzzle, I was able to successfully change the Gnome resolution to 1024X768.

I took a look at that file and it does not have a defined resolution.

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "radeon"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24


Before I try anything, do you know how Gnome is handling this? I'm just asking because it appears to work perfectly there.
