What you need to do is add your monitors native resolution to your XF86Config file. Here is a bit of a sample from mine, you will need to put your numbers in of course
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Generic Video Card"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1400x1050" "1025x768" "800x600" "640x480"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Then restart x (or reboot) and change your resolution in whatever window manager you use. (you may not even have to do that)
If you have a nvidia card though, this example wont help.
