Check out the "screen" section in the file cucu was talking about and check if '1024X768' is in there.
Code:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "Screen0"
        Device      "Intel 810"
        Monitor      "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth    16

        Subsection "Display"
                Depth      16
                Modes      "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection

I think redhat has a configuration program for it too.... type 'redhat' at the command line and press <tab> twice to see if there's anything that might help you.

you also need to check the monitor section to make sure you have set correct monitor HorizSync/VertRefresh - otherwise this stuff won't work as expected.

\edit
Who are you calling 'cucu'?
