KDE: Unable to change to higher resolution then 800 x 600? Help me..

Hi Guys, I am new to Linux here. I have just installed Fedora and KDE V3.4.0.6 on a P4 machine. But I cannot get a display resolution higher then 800 x 600. I have read a few threads and try to edit my xorg.conf but it doesnt seem to work. I am sure that my monitor is capable of displaying 1024 x 768 @ 70hz. I have copied my xorg.conf below for your reference. Thanks for the your help.

The portion you're looking for is...
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "1280x768" "800x600" "640x480"
SubSection "Display"

Where it says...
Modes "1280x768" "800x600" "640x480"
you need to add "1024x768". So it should look like...
Modes "1280x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
