As root, edit your xf86config file. There is a line which will probably read resolution "800x600" "640x480" you need to edit this line so that it reads resolution "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

Note that there are spaces between the quotes. Restart X (or reboot) and you should have the new resolution.
