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

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

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

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.

Who are you calling 'cucu'?
