change resolution on asus l8400

Hello anyone out there,..
Currently I'm having trouble changing my video-resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768 on an asus/L8400 laptop.
Currently installed: Redhat9.
Changing the video-memory doesn't help, neither does the console command videoresolution=1024x768. The selected video-component is Savage3. Is this incorect or should I try something else?
Please let me know.
Thanks in advance.

Add to your /etc/X11/XF86Config in the "Screen section" the mode "1024x768" or whatever you need.

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
