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'?
