Display settings are define in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Sounds like the tool you are using is not saving the config to this file.
Post the section on monitor and screen from it. Should just need to modify the screen section and add 1280x800 as the first option for the 24bit section of screen. May or may not work depending on the monitor settings. It may limit available mode options. Before modifing make a backup of the file in the event it fails. Then you can easily restore the good file from the terminal console.

I don't understand your last post. Is this a command ( run "855resolution 3c 1280 800" ) that you run or what exactly are you doing?

So if using fedora add the command to /etc/rc.local script at the bottom and it will run before X starts. Add the line with a full path to the file itself.
/usr/sbin/855resolution 3c 1280 800

Hope this helps.
